SOVEREIGNTY OF THE BODY / RADICAL TENDERNESS
It seems to us a fundamental basic right to have control over our own bodies. And yet, historically, this idea is quite new. Even after centuries of liberation struggles by discriminated people, this freedom is still a privilege of the few, not for all, and not everywhere. The current crisis has brought new challenges and have shown us how quickly the right to (bodily) self-determination can be taken away)
Nevertheless, there is hope, a more sustainable, ecological and collective counter-vision of a patriarchal capitalist and discriminatory society exists, gains influence and demands to manifest.
We at xplore would like to create a free space again where we can play and experiment with our bodies and where adventure in all forms of physical liveliness, creativity and freedom can be experienced.
Where contact, touch and communication are once again given the space they so deserve.
A place that celebrates a radical tenderness.
It is more necessary than ever to question ourselves and explore what it means to be alive and what our bodies are for.
We believe we are here to love, to care, to learn and share, to grow and enjoy.
Welcome to our playground!

presents unusual individuals who play with, work with, and explore the phenomenon of sexuality. Individuals who have developed amazing techniques and rituals on their way. These forms are as varied as sexuality itself. Some are therapeutic in nature, some emerge from aesthetic intentions, others are spiritual quests or searches for borderline experiences. Most of them just aim for pure pleasure. Their common ground is playfulness, communication, creativity and expansion beyond the traditional relationship of the couple. They represent a different sexual culture. They are art with body and soul.
will host presenters from all over the planet who will teach workshops, giving insight into their special fields.
