The Porn Supremacy

June 20, 2019 Mothertongue Media Season 1 Episode 6
The Porn Supremacy
Show Notes

We end season one with a bang — on the little known Danish island of Pornø. 

To mark half a century since Denmark became the first country to legalise visual pornography, we take a deep dive into arty porn and pornographic art.

Up first, we meet Rasmus Steenbakken, the curator of a major new group exhibition at the ARoS art museum in Aarhus which looks at cultural creativity, freedom of expression and art in the age of pornography.

Then we talk to Anne Sofie Steen Sverdrup of Copenhagen-based porn production company Bedside Productions. She wants society to take porn more seriously as a cultural product — and even went in front of the camera to show how it should be done.
