For qui­te some time qujOchÖ works in a refle­xi­ve man­ner on the issue of ero­tic, sexu­al and por­no­gra­phic rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ons in com­pu­ter games. In Octo­ber 2013 a low bud­get exhi­bi­ti­on ent­it­led “PIXELPORNO 0.1 – a short jour­ney through the histo­ry of computer*sex*games” was laun­ched in this con­text in the for­mer doll muse­um in Linz. It offe­red a short jour­ney through the histo­ry of such com­pu­ter games bet­ween 1980 and 2013, sup­ple­men­ted by media and gen­der theo­re­ti­cal set pie­ces.

Now the next deve­lop­ment sta­ge is laun­ched: PIXELPORNO 0.2 deals with an more inten­se exami­na­ti­on on the inter­faces bet­ween sci­ence and art. Apart from rea­ding cir­cles and lec­tures an exhi­bi­ti­on with works by inter­na­tio­nal artists which have addres­sed that topic will the­re­fo­re be ope­ned on March, 27th 2015.

In a first lec­tu­re Doris All­hut­ter will talk on visu­al poli­tics and affec­tive mate­ria­li­ty. She is working at the Insti­tu­te of Tech­no­lo­gy Assess­ment at the Aus­tri­an Aca­de­my of Sci­en­ces and aut­hor of the book Dis­po­si­ti­ve digi­ta­ler Por­no­gra­fie, Cam­pus Ver­lag, Frankfurt/New York 2009.
