For an irreverent and fascinating night out you could do worse than swinging by to ArtWank this April 20th to watch some rare old smut and enjoy this month’s guest lecture “An Increasingly Brief History of the Muff”
Based around vintage pornography, great music, mini-lectures from contemporary sex-workers and writers and retro-tastic cabaret performance, ArtWank has had tasty reviews and great attendance since it’s launch in London in February…
“Artwank! packages a foolproof concept in a relaxed and absorbing atmosphere, offering a truly unique experience in cabaret entertainment. Kudos to the immoral genius that put this wild ride together – she may have found her true calling, the filthy tramp. Guarantee your fix of over-the-top smut by booking early, because the Horse Hospital’s 70-seat capacity won’t last long when Ophelia’s bits hit the silver screen again next month.” The Erotic Review

MAYHEM tmc Limited, a London-based theatre company, is seeking contributors for a short documentary on female boxing that we are producing with independent film-maker Alice Holland Ballard as part of our current project BIG BRITAIN: Boxing.

Notorious young artist Sarah Maple has been making waves with her confrontational work since her graduation in 2007, immediately picking up attention and collaborations with Charles Saatchi, Dolce and Gabbanna and Dazed and Confused.
Her paintings, photography, performance and mixed media sculptures frequently reference and seek to stir debate around the issues of femininity, feminism, the Muslim female identity and sexuality. We dropped Sarah a line to find out more about the notions behind her controversial images….
Interesting piece about feminism and context over at The F Word.
