BORNPORN is a project inspired in the work of the visual artist Ross Watson and concretely in a paintings series in which Watson juxtapose icons of contemporary paitings with classical texts by Linda Williams that address the gender and pornography issues of her books "Figures of Desire : A Theory and Analysis of Surrealist Film" and "Hard Core: Power, Pleasure and the Frenzy of the Visible".
BORNPORN is about the birth and death of a new porn writing. A project aiming to explore on stage the theme and formats of pornography.
