This event will be the exclusive debut presentation of the interdisciplinary DIVINE LUST project by Anthony de Bono. Natürlich, this event will be taking place in the magical city of Berlin: the chosen home to the artist & the breeding ground of this intimate insight into the creative community that has enabled Anthony to grow and develop in his personal artistic journey.

DIVINE LUST explores Anthony de Bono’s interdisciplinary artistic practice; the ongoing result from this endeavor includes the creation of a short film and a coinciding fashion collection, then the experiential events which will take place to present this project will incorporate Anthony’s practice of conceptualizing physical installation pieces, along with his curatorial work and creative direction practices in bringing together collaborators from a collection of diverse folks from his underground queer Berlin community to execute the entirety of each of these one-off event experiences for this project.

In his own words here, Anthony notes specifically about his intentions with the short film: “Creating a visual experience of intimacy and collaboration within Queer culture — with the stark reminder that existence is political.”

The short film component of this project allows for a theatrical realization of de Bono’s work, utilizing a sea of references from homages to classical sculpture to the working methodology of industrial noise groups. This short film is an unapologetically confrontational response to the current political climate of aggression towards Queer culture and existence.

As this short film is only one component of the overall project, this event will also act as the debut showcase & pop-up shop of the artist’s fashion collection. Music will be provided throughout the evening by Electrosexual (aka Romain Frequency) who composed and produced the original score for the short film. There will also be a performance of brand new choreography by local Berliner contemporary dancer Kevin Bo. And there will also be a slew of spontaneous guests and performative moments during this special evening, as well as conceptual installations throughout the space

This project has been a group effort of a collection of folks of our Queer community here in Berlin, and the aim here is to gather and celebrate this work that’s been created together — please do take the time to click the link to Anthony’s website for a more in-depth look at all the key people involved in bringing this project to life.

Short film screenings throughout the evening at 20:00, 21:00 and 22:00.
