Gender culture and the values 'honesty' and 'equality'
On 14 and 15 June 2013, the Viennese fashion store Tiberius invites to the exhibition 'XXX Man'. The shop Tiberius is known for its range of designer fashion, beauty (especially perfumes) and accessories with a touch of fetish. On occasion of the 'Regenbogenparade' on 15 June in Vienna, Tiberius' Karl Ammerer and Marcos Valenzuela-Abril collected for the tribute exhibition 'XXX Man' provocative paintings, sketches, photos by six artists. The Regenbogenparade is an annual walk with music and dance around the Inner City of Vienna for more awareness of gender equality, especially concerning homosexuals and transgenders. The 'XXX Man' images at Tiberius reference the intention of the Regenbogenparade and present today's body-culture from the point of view of 'honesty' and 'equality' - with a touch of fetish.
Participating artists are the photographers Sam Scott Schiavo, Andreas Bitesnich, Matthias Hermann, the painter Manfred Paar, illustrator Sepp Engelmaier, and the caricaturist Roland Zimmermann.
By the way: the participating artists such as Sam Scott Schiavo are depicting only for the exhibition 'XXX Man' exclusively men; Schiavo films and photographs all sexes.
