A diverse selection of gay erotic literature, art, and photography comprises this volume of contributions from both American and European writers, artists, and photographers. The featured essays, short stories, poems, and artwork focus on the provocative subject of rebels and demonstrate the changes in every medium of erotic art from one year to the next. Showing how the genre is constantly and creatively reinventing itself, this is a fascinating look at a versatile form of expression.

KAI TEICHERT, "John Palatinus", 2012
a one night stand…
Während seiner 5-wöchigen USA-Reise hat er den Portraitkopf des Fotographen John Palatinus in Palm Springs, Californien und anschließend in New York geschaffen.
Wir freuen uns, neben Fotos, Kohlezeichnungen und Projektionen von Kai Teichert an diesem Abend auch eine Serie von John Palatinus vielbeachteten physical photographies aus den 50-iger Jahren zeigen zu können und John Palatinus persönlich via Skype aus Palm Springs zuzuschalten.
John Palatinus is one of the few surviving leaders in the fight for the freedom to disseminate Gay photography and art during the 1950s and ’60s. He is a legendary photographer from an era now called the “Golden Age of Physique Photography”.
During his five-week U.S. trip, Kai Teichert modelled in clay the head portrait of Palatinus in Palm Springs, California, and finished the work in New York City, March 2012.
Photos, charcoal drawings and projections of Kai Teichert will be accompanied by a series of highly acclaimed photographs of John Palatinus. These are the physique photographs from the 1950s. John Palatinus will be present via Skype on this evening.

“The majority of my artwork consists of cut and layered paper, a style I derived from my hands-on experience with airbrushing. My palette is either black and flesh-tones; shades of white, beige, and brown; or vivid pure colors. The art works are shallow 3-dimensional constructions and the interaction of light and the movement of the viewer causes the shadows to change – creating a somewhat kinetic piece of art.”
