Emre Busse is an art historian and filmmaker specializing in contemporary sexualities and trans-cultural pornography studies. He recently completed his Ph.D. at the Art History faculty of the Freie University of Berlin, supported by a 3-year doctoral fellowship from the Hans-Böckler-Stiftung. He holds an M.A. from the Fine Arts Faculty of Bauhaus University, Weimar (2015).

In 2017, he co-curated the exhibition "Soft g - queer forms migrate" at Schwules Museum Berlin, a significant LGBTQ+ History Museum in Berlin.

He is a member of the Masculinity, Sex, and Popular Culture Network, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in the United Kingdom. His monograph “Ethnicity as Desire: Gay Pornographic Film between Europe and the S.W.A.N.A. Regions” will be published in early 2024.


What desire means to me:
We wouldn’t call it as desire if we actually could define it.
