Voyeur.Berlin.Kinky. We photographed more than 180 people privately during the Corona period. Symbiotikka KitKat Club is one of the most intimate parties in Berlin. At the time when all clubs are closed, we took more than 180 people very intimate, kinky, erotic photos. these people give a rarely view into their private life. photographed by Gili Shani, who has been the house photographer of the legendary KitKat Club in Berlin for many years. this should result in a book and exhibition.
Voyeur.Berlin.Kinky. These pictures have never been seen before. it is a unique contemporary document. a scene that is very closed, but which also shapes Berlin culture, club life and the special nature of this city. The people who are in front of Gili's camera show up in their private surroundings. Naked, kinky, sexy, in fetish outfits, in sexual action, very private and always totally authentic. These people live this lifestyle, who come from all areas: they are sex positive, respectful, diverse, body positive, self-determined and in consensus. they are heterosexual, gay, fetishists, bdsm fans, queer, lesbian, playful, peculiar, trans, exhibitionist, and so much more ... they are real. they allow an insight into their sexual world, which remains closed to most. From the thousands of photos, we make a photo book with about 400 pages and a photo art exhibition. We need your support to finance this project, print the photo book, the costs of the exhibition and the planning and implementation. This is not just about art, about documenting a special world, but also about a social attitude, for more curiosity, more respect, more diversity, more love for and between people and more responsibility for a better life together.
The book and the exhibitors contain sexually explicit images and are only suitable for adults.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
What we do! We have already photographed more than 180 people, in the end there will be around 200 people. a high-quality photo book with approx. 400 pages is planned. In addition, 1-3 exhibitions in Berlin, Cologne and Hamburg.
Our goal The project appeals to art and photography lovers, but also stylists, fashion lovers, club people, people from the kinky and techno scene, curious people, who have an insight into the Berlin underground scene, into the KitKat Club Berlin and into the fetish scene .
Why would you support this project?
We are serious and authentic! Especially in corona times this sensitive underground culture is endangered. the clubs are closed, many communication rooms are no longer available. therefore we go privately to these people and show them so that they are understood and not perished.
The project is an authentic testimony to a culture and a time that has never been shown so intensely and honestly
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
We need your support! The money raised is used to pay for the production of this high-quality around 400-page photo book and the associated exhibitions
