Families, emotions and new media. On John Clang.

The process of taking the photographs that constitute John Clang’s “Being Together” is very emotive, profoundly moving. Feelings and emotions are generated by it. Although the title suggests that the work is about physical contact and about sharing spaces, the focus and the ethos of it is in fact about a state of mind, about a mood, about a shared emotional state that exceeds spatial and temporal barriers.

Talking About Paying For Sex

The spectator is confronted by arguments for and against the sex industry, opposing views coming simultaneously at you from each ear.

Now you can both enjoy Halloween and smash the patriarchy at the same time!
