instinct #11




The 11th edition of Instinct, titled UNZUCHT_Against Nature, will happen on September 8,
2022 at Village Berlin. 

UNZUCHT is the combination of the syllable Un, which could be translated to not or against, and Zucht, which would be defined as the act of breeding animals or cultivating plants.
Within the term, linguistically is a larger statement of a socially-constructed natural order. Unzucht defines an erratic growth.
Unzucht has been defined as sexual behaviour against the religious or cultural norms,
mainly in between men and/or man and animals. Historically, Unzucht was used as a derogatory term that places judgment on human sexual behaviors considered immoral
or perverse to the heteronormative social norms.
Unzucht is a badge of honor, a rejection of classical heteronormative values. It is an act
of independence towards expressing our mind, body, and sexuality. This term has a long history of being used against us to demean, degrade or even remove us from participating
in society - and now we will use it to heal.

A collective exhibition co-curated by Slava Mogutin
with Slava Mogutin & Johnny Abbate, Flavius Augustin, Andreas Fux, Homographia,
Matt Lambert, Leolo, Laurent Pellissier, Lysa Irene Velasquez, Gerardo Vizmanos, Ansgar Wilken.
