We Need to Talk About Watching Sex on Screen, Now

The talk, along with the special exhibition "Celluloid Erotica: An Exploration of Sexploitation Films" at BIFAN 2024, opens discussions from various perspectives on how the long-standing intimate relationship between screen and sex is being communicated to our audiences today. Sex in cinema, which has captivated audiences more intensely and intimately than any other image, has appeared in various forms under strong control and censorship. Through intense negotiations between pleasure and control, cinema has devised various ways to display, reproduce, and imagine sex on screen, maintaining a long-standing intimate relationship with audiences. With the involvement of capital, ideology, political imagination, and media/communication technology, screen sex has sometimes become a space of escape, and at other times, a factory of exploitation.

Here are the questions: at a time when social interest in the representation of sex, gender dynamics and justice against violences being seriously reconsidered more than ever, what perspective do we have toward seeing sex on screen today? How has Korean society's response to screen sex, which has been publicized through the pre-censorship and obscenity charges against Yu Hyun-mok's A Spring Dream(Chunmong) in 1966, Shin Sang-ok's Eunuch in 1969, and controversy over Jang Sun-woo's Lies in 2000, changed over the past 60 years?
