Research Project

Genealogy of obscenity: From the pornfication of gazeto the politicisation of nudity
This project analyses certain shifts in the definition of obscenity. Although nudity images and allusions to explicit sexuality multiply in the contemporary media and artistic landscapes, there is a trend toward  reproving only a few of them for being “indecent” according to new meanings, claiming a  bodily “purity” of a new character. Within this battlefield, there are numerous resistances and contradictions, which seem to emerge upon the historical transformation of images of the body.
