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

Former opera singer Adrineh Simonian and activist Patrick Catuz are behind Arthouse Vienna. They have developed a new kind of pornography that breaks down the boundaries between art and pornography.

 

They work outside the structures of the commercial porn industry because they want to show sexual and emotional diversity in a sensual way.

Artistically, politically, and above all: humanly.

Counter-designs to conventions, avant-garde new sexual expressions or experiments with the psychology of sex: these are the works of Arthouse Vienna.

 

Arthouse Vienna works outside the structures of the commercial porn industry and therefore mostly with performers who have never had sex in front of the camera.

 

Arthouse Vienna is a safe space for all genders, orientations, body types, ages, origins, abilities, kinks and much more.
