On the intersection of activism and pornography, Videokabine recreates the “masturbation booth” experience online. Each event features around four performers broadcasting live from their domiciles for the pleasure of anyone keen to listen in.
A chat box by the side and a donation button for the performers (Videokabine is a non-profit event), the setup combines the intimacy and immediacy of camming with the collective experience of performance art with Geisler’s photos providing a green-screen background.
The initial Videokabine saw more than 500 people stay tuned from about the whole world, all viewing exactly the same performance in anonymity – which could, by itself, be an erotic experience. You’d be hard pressed to find a stronger combination than getting off on a live peep show with no idea who else is in the room if you consider mystery and riskiness to be powerful libidinal forces.
