Various Artists - Just Say No To Family Values
JUST SAY NO TO FAMILY VALUES – John Giorno/Antonello Faretta, Keren Cytter, Maria Petschnig, Patrycja German, Jaan Toomik/J. Paavle/R. Laius, Karol Radziszewski, Deborah Schamoni, Paolo Mezzacapo de Cenzo
The title of the compilation JUST SAY NO TO FAMILY VALUES is borrowed from the eponymous video, and is in line with the work as statement and clear commentary on the current increasingly recognizable conservative backlash. In their short video, filmmakers John Giorno and Antonello Faretta unabashedly celebrate hedonism with an emphatic gentleness and poke fun at conservative positions in a lyrical speech act. The aim of the compilation is to cast a multi-part glance from various perspectives and geo-political contexts on body and gender roles as well as sexual politics.
