Adrineh & Patrick: From art to porn and back again.

The former opera singer Adrineh Simonian and the activist Patrick Catuz jointly founded Arthouse Vienna in 2015 and have worked to develop a new kind of pornography that breaks down the boundaries between art and pornography.

They work outside the structures of the commercial porn industry, mostly with actors who have never had sex on camera. They are open to all genders, orientations and body types in order to convey the sexual diversity of people. In a sensual and aesthetic way.
