Manifesta purposely strives to keep its distance from what are often seen as the dominant centres of artistic production, instead seeking fresh and fertile terrain for the mapping of a new cultural topography.

The relationship between female orgasm and the fantasies behind masturbation are the focus of this project by artist Hungarian Andrea Éva Győri. The artist took part in a practical course run by sexologist Dr Dania Schiftan, which dealt with both the physical and psychological levels of achieving orgasm. In private sessions in her subjects’ homes in Zurich, the artist invited women to masturbate while she drew them or illustrated their fantasies.
