The approaching climate catastrophe, deforestation, and pandemics – result from (and threatens) the activities of the human species. What would the end of the Anthropocene look like, filtered through the prism of postporn art? We offer an interesting look at the sexuality of the era of catastrophe: from the disturbing film Blastogenesis X by Conrad Veit, shown at Berlinale 2021 to the artistic and convincing vision of humanity as a swarm of insects (Mosquerío by Fernanda Gallardo & Maria Catalina). Let’s look at how we can perform sexuality just before the end of the world and think about what it’ll be like when we are gone or re-emerge as a completely new species.

During dynamic climate change, a tornado over Vienna, a Peruvian rainforest and Victoria Falls can all provide stimulating visual post-pornographic material.
In a critical and humorous way, the film addresses ecosexuality, the fetish of nature and activism, and is inspired by the “Ecosex Manifesto” by Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens.

Two creatures meet during a hunt in the heart of a dark forest. They attract and repel one another – perhaps this is what sexuality will look like once we all go back to the forest.

A queer-feminist, experimental postporn that aims to challenge the boundaries of post-pornographic representation and formulate a visual language able to describe the new sensuality.
Netherlands / Slovenia 2020, 17’
The film examines the impact on social ties and countercultural communities of the absence of nightlife and parties (pandemic). One of the festival’s visual gems.

A counter-fiction of the late-stage Anthropocene, post-pandemic world of sexual practices. If nature is more romantic than culture, then evacuation strategies cease to be of any significance.

Chile 2020, 10’
Humanity depicted as a swarm of insects in a collective search for light and freedom. A sensual, social-chorographical story about cultural change.
Conrad Veit & Charlotte Maria Kätzl
Germany 2020, 27’
Shot on film and presented at the 2021 Berlinale, this experimental film deconstructs the rigid boundaries between humans and animals, masculinity and femininity.
