John Trengove

Germany/Netherlands/France 2017

As part of «Ulwaluko», a circumcision ritual, the young Xhosa men spend several days together in the mountains. They fast, sing, bathe, meditate and smoke marijuana. The ritual serves as a «rite de passage»: The ritual is to turn the young Xhosa into «real» men. So-called «caregivers» guide the ritual participants through the procedure. Different worlds meet in the process. Seventeen-year-old Kwanda is sent to the mountains by his father, a wealthy businessman, to complete the ritual where he grew up. Kwanda is rejected by the other teenagers. Xolani, his caregiver, has also left the rural surroundings, but does not belong to the wealthy circles, but works as a warehouse clerk in Queenstown.

Concert: Legion Seven (Basel)

Legion Seven is an artist whose work is an erratic vehicle on a splendid path. This work has lead her through worlds of expression as various as the imagination – their only consistency being an extreme divergence from the cult rigidity into which she was born. Dream mythology, science-fiction, chaos logic, and the exuberant lies of biblical language are all found woven into the strange tapestries of storytelling we experience from Seven today.

Born in Canada and living in Switzerland, Legion Seven has founded and co-founded numerous projects including «The Several Ways I’ve Died In My Imagination», winner of the 2018 Basler Medienkunstpreis.

Concert: Black Pitch (pitches in exile)

Black Pitch is an experimental music project consisting of the members SIANUR (Iran/Kurdistan), Lynn Aineo (Uganda) and TRA (South Africa). The transcultural trio explores memory, identity, protest, pleasure, pain and everything else in the spectrum of experiencing the «different».

Schernikau - is translated into the present. The translation of the film itself is the subject of the film. It is tenderness between people that is celebrated, in casual images and, quite naturally, five young people are portrayed: Tonia, Franz, Paul, Erika and Helmuth. Where they come from is irrelevant. Everyday moments pass by, the own self and the community are celebrated. Doubts are there, but they are overcome in cooperation, in cooperation it succeeds and becomes so pretty. Tonia translates the novel and has it read by her friends, who are all just as much part of the story as she is.

Festival Centre with information booth, queerbooks, reading corner, and Fuck Me in the Ear – audible pornography.

Once again, the festival centre will offer a permanent space: On the one hand, various workshops, concerts, festival parties and the presentation of the Lust_Awards will take place in the festival centre. On the other hand a comfortable reading corner with Queerbooks and audible pornography «Fuck me in the Ear» will invite you to hang out. The information stand regarding accreditation, guests and/or film information can also be found there.

Fuck Me in the Ear (Zurich/England)

psssst... do you hear that? The sound of skin on skin, the rustling of fabric, the squeaking of bedsprings, the soft moaning of a lover, the full clapping of a paddle on a naked butt....
Fuck Me in the Ear is pornography to listen to. In this immersive audio installation, visitors can cuddle up to a cosy listening area and listen to recordings of real intimacy. The sexy recordings of couples, groups, orgies or solo performers are complemented by intimate, true stories, post-coital conversations and post-masturbatory monologues. The listeners learn about the people behind the moaning: their relationships, sexual experiences and fantasies.

Collection

Taking pleasure into your own hands!

The relationship to our body and our sexuality is influenced by individual experience and action. We want to pursue this individual experience and experiment with approaches to our sexual desire. By different possibilities and ways, the workshop would like to place the body perception in the centre and make something about the individual desire experienceable. The workshop consists mainly of experiments around our perceptions in connection with sexual experience. We feel, perceive, observe, reflect and try out. Each person works for themselves.
