Date: August 21, 2020, noon to midnight
E-Viction is a virtual arthouse / whore gallery event that existed for 12 hours before self-destructing. Log on and be seduced by our virtual peepshow where you’ll have intimate encounters with sex workers and artists making art and sex live on cam. Scroll through performers’ ads, shop art and sex objects at our E-Banned shop, learn about legislation that threatens sex workers and free speech online, join raunchy chat rooms, and protest digital gentrification. But be sure to tune in before it’s all gone at midnight. E-Viction is the only deplatforming you can prepare for in advance.
In the midst of this global health crisis, most sex workers must work, gather, and organize online despite being targets of pervasive surveillance and deplatforming. By engaging on a platform that violates SESTA/FOSTA, visitors and performers alike will engage in a new form of civil disobedience.
E-Viction is produced as part of the 2020 Rapid Response residency at Eyebeam and supported by Kink Out Events.
