Bondage occupies a very specific place in sexual pop culture and has largely become the domain of the middle class: removed from its original context, normalized, and tamed, it does not in any way expand sexual discourse. Tie me up and untie me section of the festival presents bondage in a slightly different context: as art present in the public space, foreplay, or a tense, poetic story about the limits of gender. Of course, we are not able to exhaust all the possibilities of interpretation in one festival section. After all, bondage is already permanently embedded in Western culture – perhaps, however, this is why it provides new and more alternative methods of narration and invites artists to use it to communicate new, interesting content.
