BEWARE OF A HOLY WHORE,  a Troyan / Göransson production

"Channeling a conversation between the ruins of the Cold War with Berlin as the epicenter of erotic destruction and the prostitute as the figure of survival and economic post-war flourishing, ‘BEWARE OF A HOLY WHORE’ is a psychosexual remapping of desire and capital. Using the figures of Fassbinder’s BRD Trilogy and other filmic and cultural sources, the whore becomes a woman to be revered rather than shunned as she presides over a funeral for capitalism and the city, as a future site of freedom and joy.

This performance is a new video and written work created in collaboration by Johannes Goransson and Cassandra Troyan for Word Weekend at the MCA. It will take place on Sunday the 27th at 1PM in the Kanter meeting room on the first floor.”

The ‘human’ is not a given concept, but rather is one that is made in an ongoing technological and anthropological process.
