26-28 July, 2019
Friday to Sunday

hosts a wide range of presenters who play with, work with, and explore the phenomenon of sexuality. Individuals who have developed powerful techniques and rituals on their way. These forms and expressions are as varied as sexuality itself. Some are therapeutic in nature, some emerge from aesthetic intentions, others are searches for borderline experiences. Many of them just aim for pure pleasure. Their common ground is playfulness, communication, creativity. They expand sexuality beyond pornographic stereotypes, heteronormativity and the traditional couple relationship. They represent a different sexual culture. They are art with body and soul. 

displays a social field with a dramatically different code of communication: Honesty and directness, empathy and kindness are the norm.

is an idea of the choreographer and conceptual artist Felix Ruckert and takes places annually in Berlin, Germany since 2004. Currently there are also annual editions in Roma and Barcelona.

Our program

We have an official photographer at xplore – Paul Jung.
The photos Paul will be taking are exclusively used by us, mostly for the xplore web site. 
We only use photos where we know the people who are recognizable and we will ask them before a possible publication!
Often the photos  we use are showing only body shapes, details and moods, so that no recognizability of the person has to be feared.

If  nevertheless you do not wish to be photographed at all, please give Paul a short, nice information about that. He (and we) will obviously respect that. 


Check In will open at 9:30 am on friday!
