Xplore – what is it about?

xplore - The Festival on the Art of Lust


… is a three-day immersive event with a focus on the sexual body and sexuality as artistic expression.

… offers more than 60 workshops, happenings, performances and lectures at the intersection between art and sexuality, as well as three curated play spaces for individual experiences.

… hosts a wide range of presenters who play with, work with, and explore the phenomenon of sexuality. Individuals who have developed powerful techniques and rituals on their way. These forms and expressions are as varied as sexuality itself. Some are therapeutic in nature, some emerge from aesthetic intentions, others are searches for borderline experiences. Many of them just aim for pure pleasure. Their common ground is playfulness, communication, creativity. They expand sexuality beyond pornographic stereotypes, heteronormativity and the traditional couple relationship. They represent a different sexual culture. They are art with body and soul. 

… displays a social field with a dramatically different code of communication: Honesty and directness, empathy and kindness are the norm.

… is an idea of the choreographer and conceptual artist Felix Ruckert and takes places annually in Berlin, Germany since 2004. Currently there are also annual editions in Roma and Barcelona.
