Emotional Porn: Exhibition of the Self (2018) - Keren Rosenberg & Tony Markus Sacharias

In the world we live in now, the use of image and social positioning is like never before. We are increasingly exposing ourselves and being exposed to the masses; producing never ending images about our lives, our experiences and our bodies. We become a brand, a product, a perfect display of identity. Showcasing our impeccable lives towards real and imagined audiences that shows no signs of vulnerabilities.

How much of what we share about ourselves is real?

Emotional Porn - Exhibition of the Self is a visual, sensorial and emotional journey which explores our social obsessionof self-exposure through the use of modern technology. Performer Keren Rosenberg, visual artist Tony Markus Sacharias and filmmaker Nicola Cavalazzi create an immersive physical and virtual interface between the human body, image and performance. Inviting audiences to reflect on their own perception of identity, as they touch realms of intimacy, social positioning, vulnerabilities, fear and confrontation.  


A boundless universe of dance and audiovisual art installation.



“I ask you a simple question. The answer you give is personal and connected to you.

In each answer I invite you to share a piece of yourself with me with yourself and with the space you are in.

I want you to be aware of the question, the answer and the

way you choose to respond”.






"In the process of our research, we were searching for ways to create an environment that is almost virtual – as if the human body is taken away from its real existential experience and placed almost inside a screen of a phone or a computer screen."
