Project Description

Nehra Stella

Nehra Stella

She is a queer artist, mother and filmmaker, who moved from Paris to Berlin, in 2008, which she considers to be her homeland. In her work she explores gender, sexuality, identity issues, love and relationships, with an ironic, erotic, feminist, queer point of view. She believes that ART and SEX can change the world. She directed “Paris la Nuit” in 2009, “Vivre Berlin” in 2013 and “Berlin-Sarajevo” in 2014, together with the artist Natasha Davis and she is right now working on the documentary “LE BEL ANIMAL“ on the Xplore Berlin festival of 2017. She has collaborated with Felix Ruckert for a few years in various projects, and leads workshops and performances on Gender and BDSM. She co-curated the program for the Xplore festival in Roma 2017. In 2018 she will direct and perform together with Anna Natt the play space “The School of Love“ at xplore Berlin 2018 and she co-curates the program for xplore Rome, Barcelona and Copenhagen.

Philipp

Philipp holds a PhD in social movement research. Through his own queer practice, he studies the interface between manhood, partnership and social change. With his partner Sarah-Aleisha he puts forward the question of how free and voluptuous sexuality can be experienced in safe and protected ways.

Boys Get Fucked in the Ass

As soon as Nehra and her model Philipp invite the crowd to try out a different sexual role from what they are used to performing in their common life, the crowd is split into 2 groups: the “Penetrator“ and the “Penetrated“.
The first gets support to reveal their dominant side, the second is guided to let go and surrender.

As a man it is a good thing to get penetrated and to be cool with it. Not just because of the pleasure, and there is pleasure and it’s good for you, but also because getting fucked unravels the basic but troubling idea grounding normative masculinity: that to be a man means to penetrate the bodies of others while remaining yourself impermeable.To be powerful, strong, active, in control and dominant is expected from “Real Men“, this is also why it is totally accepted that men invade and control the space of others; on the other hand the same behaviour adopted by women, seems to be radically condemned.

The Normative thinking refers often to “Natural Inclination“ of the “Biological Gender“. But the life of this workshop has demonstrated everywhere (from Helsinki to Rome, passing by Berlin) how constructed, artificial and weak these concepts are. In reality, just allowing people to be free from those categories, has revealed how ready Woman are to be dominant, taking space, taking control and take a man from behind. This seems to be very satisfying for both sides. For Men to be penetrated is a way to open the consciousness to other states of being human, to experience surrender and the pleasurable experience of being passive and allowed to do less and feel more.

We firmly believe that to explore these topics, in a collective, consensual and playful way, gives a strong feeling of empowerment to anyone.
To give back the freedom that education, religions and institutions have stolen from our bodies, and letting the bodies rule and finally taking responsibilities for our own desires and fantasies.
To freely act and explore, outside the frame we have been raised, it’s a path toward liberation and also toward self-revolution.

  • The workshop is open for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, philosophical schooling or lack thereof.
