On/Scenity via BPA (ft. David Byrne & Dizzee Rascal)

Film theorist Linda Williams discussing the performative realism of Catherine Breillat’s Fat Girl in her talk, Hardcore Art Film: The Contemporary Realm of the Senses at last year’s Obscenity Conference in U. of Iowa.

Listen to the lecture and categorize the nature of this music video (with a nod to 70s porn nonetheless). Consider that the heavyweights of dance, hip-hop and pop collaborated on a joint effort to titillate us with censored genitals and uncensored bodily movements. Maybe sex is dirty for those with the dirty minds. Or maybe there is an “in-between.”

Simulated sex: Great care is taken to avoid the display of sexual organs


Unstimulated sex: Male and Female organs are on aggressive displays
