Labor - an exhibition and film screenings about sex work

Movie

A three day event focusing on sex work and queerness. Different perspectives will be presented through exhibition, film screenings and talks.

"Sex Work is work but also sometimes it's labor, like digging a ditch."

(From How to fuck: A case study for the bodily exhausted by Cyd Nova, published in Nerve Endings: The New Trans Erotic edited by Tobi Hill-Meyer)


This is a three day event focusing on sex work and queerness. Different perspectives will be presented through exhibition, film screenings and talks. The films and art showed is either made by sex workers (some open about their work and some not), or allies and friends of sex workers. The event is organised by Tove Pils and SAQMI - The Swedish Archive for Queer Moving Images in cooperation with Folkuniversitetet.
