Simone's current art project “Bing({‘})h” is a playful artistic anthropology of sexual representation in both language and image, which aims to reduce the taboos and paradoxes surrounding the depiction of female sexuality.


Let's play, Homos*! Willkommen in der Welt der Menschenbilder.

Simone Orgel, Karolina Capasso

Moment mal.. *Homo WTF?!
Homo – hŏmō [ˈhɔmoː] ist das lateinische Wort für „Mensch“ und wird mit einem Adjektiv kombiniert, wie bspw. Homo oeconomicus, Homo deus oder Homo faber, zu einem sogenannten „Menschenbild“ und damit zu dem, wie wir die Welt – implizit oder explizit – wahrnehmen. Mächtig also. Und was ist er? Ein Spielender? Ein Sozialer?
