Milo Moiré’s performance series NAKED SELFIES thematize and caricature the pop-cultural mass phenomenon of self-portraits in social media. The artist take selfies with passersby using her remote-controlled camera mounted on a tripod, contrary to the others Milo Moiré is naked. In contrast to “PLOPEGG PAINTING PERFORMANCE – A Birth of a Picture”, which was performed during the ART COLOGNE 2014, this work requires interaction.
“The people who take a nude selfie with me actually disclose something about themselves, present themselves to the world with a statement. Through this physical, bodily interaction between me as a self-exposing avatar and the people wanting a selfie, I want to establish a point of contact between the real and the digital revelation of intimacy. A new meta-level of self-staging emerges“, Moiré says.
Milo Moiré (born 1983) is a Swiss artist and model known for her nude performances and the use of her body in her art. Moiré was born in Switzerland, of Slovak and Spanish origin, but works from Düsseldorf, Germany.

Domenico Barra is a (Dirty) New Media Artist based in Napoli (Italy) working with digital media with a major focus on internet culture.Tumblr and Support @ Patreon!
Dirty New Media (DNM) is a term first used by the artist Jon Cates. J. Cates, who is also the Chair of the Film, Video, New Media & Animation department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, says Dirty New Media’s mission is “to express a contrast with the kind of cleanliness that is [associated] with more commercial or corporate styles of digital art and design. It refers to a menagerie of alternative practices and subcultures spanning from punk and digital sampling to piracy and pornography”.
quote [I am interested in subcultures and tabood human acts, their consumption in privacy and distribution in society. Porn is not a mere representation of sexual fantasies. Porn is the ultimate argument to address history, politics, art, or economy. I use copies of copyright protected contents to discuss industries and lobbies, production, distribution and appropriation and also, roles of sexes, money, porn as a proper expression of capitalistic society.
I produce “partial” (dirty) record of the wide and wild range of pornographic material available online, selected, remixed and contextualized in various projects such as Pirate Porno Material, Pirate Porno Material 2, Wrecked, Red Link District, Head(Her)Less and A picture is never private (anymore) and Dirty Screens. The works were produced using the technique of databending that consists of using softwares not designed for the image editing task such as text editing and music softwares. Through these process I manage to corrupt/glitch digital format such as .jpg, .gif, .avi, .bmp, .raw, .tif, .iff, .png and so on.
I have been working with many media, focusing my practice and research on topics related to politics and human behaviors. Corrupted governments, mafias, corporations, an art form and production as a sort of rebellion, sabotage, activism, I always tried to create works that would shock people and create debates. When a subject is too complex, I realized that people would tend to get bored or disturbed and ignore the crucial part of it, I needed to find something that could help me in analyzing and represent those topics, or at least some of them, that wouldn't bother people, or bore them, so I thought about sex. I believe that one of the most complete subject, a subject that touches many of the aspects of our lives as part of a society is sex, its depiction in mass media, from the internet to advertisement, politics related to gender, sexism, the economy of sex, copyright, and so on].

O’Dell’s work is comprised of haunting imagery. Ranging from dark imposing landscapes to mystifying portraitures, that evoke sensations of vulnerability, demise and the fear associated with such sentiments.

Berlin based artist Vermibus regularly collects advertising posters from the streets, using them in his studio as the base material for his work. There, a process of transformation begins. Using solvent, he brushes away the faces and flesh of the models appearing in the posters as well as brand logos. Once the transformation is complete, he then reintroduces the adverts back into their original context, hijacking the publicity, and its purpose.

quote [Forniphilia is a form of BDSM where a person is used as household furniture. The best example is, of course, Allen Jones’s 1970 sculptures of a table, chair and hatstand, which surprisingly still causes controversy even today. People were being used as furniture long before this though, and the oldest depiction I have seen so far is a 1878 carved wooden chair of two nude females on their hands and knees holding up a seat. Since taking my first fetish photograph over twenty-five years ago, I have met many submissive women who would call themselves feminists. Sex has no ideology, so it is useless to tell someone it is not politically correct to be tied up and beaten or to run off with someone else’s partner. If it gives them satisfaction they will do it. People will often extrapolate from their own position. If they cannot imagine doing something themselves, even as a last resort, they imagine someone else engaging in it must be doing so under some form of duress, which is often not the case... more].
