"Pornography - the linguistic, pictorial representation of sexual acts with a one-sided emphasis on the genital Scope and without the psychic and partnership aspects of sexuality. "
Trivialized or frowned upon - at the societal level is the illustrated representation of the sexual act a minefield that splits the minds. The numbers speak for themselves, sex sells - hardly an industry has never used this fact.
Porn in the western world has long ceased to be material handled for "perverts". The age of the Internet reluctantly introduces us to the world of pornography. Pornography is omnipresent. We all have access and we all have an opinion. Between glorification and contempt is pornography a doubleedged sword for everyone.
With his series Sexshine State Felix Kleymann gives a rare insight into the porn industry. Motivated by a critical examination of one-sided clichés, the photographer finally gets into the everyday world of a young porn actor. Through the everyday proximity to porn production, he receives the necessary distance to show the industry from a different angle. Free from the polarization of a inhumane machinery or a moralization of the mass distribution, he approaches the theme from the perspective of everyday life.
