…between eroticism and pornography, they think that they are the same thing!
So, in this post I want to take a closer look at, what is meant by erotic art, how you might define it and if it is possible to distinguish it from pornography.
Earlier this year I paid a visit to a couple of different exhibitions, both of which were marketed as promoting and selling erotic art. The first exhibition I saw was the ‘Art Erotica’ in January of this year, arranged by Cork Street Open Exhibitions and following that, I went along in February to the exhibition ‘Erotikkens Kunst’ (The art of Eroticism), arranged by Bettina Sinnet Fornitz owner of Gallery Eros. In both of these shows the organizers felt compelled to distinguish and differentiate between art and pornography, perhaps in order not to discourage those who do not like pornography or disappoint those who do. The art that was chosen to go on show for both the exhibitions reflect just how wide the range of art is which is displayed in the name of eroticism.
