Get a Room! – Queer

Marit-Östberg-5

The word queer is used in many ways, and for Get a Room! this is why the word needs to be questioned and explored. Of course we will do this as usual: by screening a sexy raunchy film and inviting some serious experts!

We will show the beautiful ‘When we are together we can be everywhere’ (2015), a feature porn and a documentary.
Liz walks between different rooms of the city. A bar, a toilet, a wasteland, a garden, a trailer. The cruising body can’t, unlike the flaneur, be alone. She won’t leave the world outside of her. Several eyes follow her: the women holding the cameras, the director. The director is sending her a love letter. The director needs her cruising body. They are a part of each others fantasies and share a dream about a city’s possibility of providing safe sexy spaces. They travel together to look for the rooms in between, to find rooms of their desires. When we are together we can be everywhere is a feature porn documentary premiered in October 2015. The project was born through a cooperation with starring Liz Rosenfeld to explore porn through a contract of nearness and liaison.

Through screening this film we would like to start a conversation about queer embodiment and sex-positivity. Why would you identify as queer? What is it like on a daily basis? What is sex-positivity, and what does this imply? How can queer-bodies help us with non-binary thinking?

This night Marije Janssen, the founder of Get a Room! will be back to host and moderate. The guests are Shayna and Manon: Shayna is an artist and is now using porn to educate her students about non-binary thinking. Manon is usually the one moderating Get a Room! in Rotterdam, but this time she will show a bit more of herself on a personal level by sharing thoughts about queer embodiment and sex-positivity.
