    The Body is a Movement


    In the Anal Gym, you will train your anus, a body part sublimated and relegated as perverted. The workout will mobilise and strengthen this small and hidden body area. Subtly pleasurable, inwardly-focused, sexually complementary, Anal Gym introduces movement exercises for training an erogenous area collectively.

    Anal Gym is a slow, subly arousing workout focused on moving, strengthening and releasing the anus and its related tissues. The guidance to the collective movement practice hints to historical, philosophical and artistic texts that have been dilating the understanding of other-than-reproductive sex cultures.

    The workshop is led by Organic Cyborg:
    Organic Cyborg is a trans intersex switch bio-artist, movement coach and masseuse. Embodied methodologies and somatic trainings inform their artistic research on sexualities, power dynamics, pathologisation and inclusivity. They contribute to the communities Four Siblings and Queertopia, participate in the community livingroom OTA and ISTA, and are co-founders of Garden Department.

    About the Body is a Movement
    During DDW we reclaim and reconnect with our bodies in an exhibition (The Gym) and a workout programme. While living in capitalist structures, our bodies became vehicles for profit. to be optimised for productivity and efficiency. These beautiful, astonishing, wondrous bodies of ours, capable of experiencing so much joy and excitement - how can we reclaim them? You can find the full programme here.

    The Body is a Movement is developed by Baltan Laboratories and Onomatopee, and kindly supported by Stichting Cultuur Eindhoven.
