Screening of “Community Action Center,” followed by a panel discussion with A.L. Steiner, Shu Lea Cheang, Bruce LaBruce and Jürgen Brüning


For the fourth time Museum Brandhorst and FILMFEST MÜNCHEN are cooperating this year. URANIANS presents a film and video program curated by New York based artist A.L. Steiner.  Featuring multiple premieres, tributes, and iconic contributions from various pioneers in the field, the collaboration is dedicated to showing, celebrating and critiquing queer and female read sexuality on screen.

The evening will open with a screening of “Community Action Center,” a 69-minutes film made in 2010 from a collaboration between A.L. Steiner and A.K. Burns. The artists themselves describe it as “a […] sociosexual video […] which incorporates the erotics of a community where the personal is not only political, but sexual.”


The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with A.L. Steiner and international protagonists from the art and film scene, including artist and filmmaker Shu Lea Cheang, underground cult director Bruce LaBruce, and producer and founder of the Pornfilmfestival Berlin, Jürgen Brüning. In conversation with Filmfest programmer Julia Weigl, they will talk about representations of erotic encounters and queer sexuality in film, about community and collaboration, and about the charged genre of porn.


This event is being held in conjunction with the exhibition “Nicole Eisenman. What Happened” and in cooperation with FILMFEST MÜNCHEN and QFFM I Queer Film Festival München.
