“Art & Porn” | 29th May | Aarhus, Denmark


To mark the fiftieth anniversary of lifting the ban on visual pornography in Denmark in 1969, ARoS and Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen have joined forces to show this group exhibition. It highlights how art was influenced by changing the law on pornography. What are the implications when the boundaries of what citizens may be faced with in public spaces change from one day to the next?
