Barbara Nitke Retrospective & Legal Review
Tuesday, January 24 from 8pm to 10pm
The Museum Of Sex, NYC, NY
From The Museum Of Sex:
An evening with Criminal Art Photographer Barbara Nitke with panelists John
Wirenius, pro bono attorney for the lawsuit and Susan Wright, spokesperson
for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom.
Barbara Nitke presents an erotic slide show of two decades of photographs
of SM lovers and candid behind-the-scenes moments with porn stars. Nitke's
slide show will be followed by a panel discussion of her landmark lawsuit -
Nitke and the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom vs. John Ashcroft (now
Gonzalez) - which challenges the Communications Decency Act. The CDA
criminalizes free speech on the Internet.
On the panel with her are John Wirenius, pro bono attorney for the lawsuit,
and Susan Wright, spokesperson for the National Coalition for Sexual
Freedom. They will discuss the current status of this lawsuit, recently
filed with the US Supreme Court, and why it's vitally important to anyone
interested in sexual rights in America.
Nitke is best known for her compelling images of SM lovers, celebrating
their deep bond and intense passion for one another, which were published
in 2003 in the book, KISS OF FIRE: A ROMANTIC VIEW OF SADOMASOCHISM. Her
second book, AMERICAN ECSTASY: MEMOIRS OF A PORN PHOTOGRAPHER will be
published this year by ReganBooks/HarperCollins. www.BarbaraNitke.com

United States that advances equal rights of consenting adults who practice
forms of alternative sexual expression. www.ncsfreedom.org
