Body of Workers Project Launch at Eyebeam's From the Rupture: Ideas and Actions for the Future



Veil Machine is a collaborative project where Niko Flux, Sybil Fury, and Empress Wu are creating a new form of digital riot to challenge SESTA/FOSTA and EARN IT. Their project is in collaboration with Kink Out Events to produce Body of Workers (BoW), a private online gallery titled created by and for sex worker artists as an act of resilience against the gentrification of the internet, and a peepshow to the art patron.

Kink Out brings intersecting communities together. As an ever-evolving container, Kink Out is a performance space, screening room, art collaboration, panel discussion, S&M club, call to action, tattoo studio, art auction, and fundraiser for communities most affected by the injustice of censorship, criminalization, and demonization of our lives and livelihoods.

From the Rupture: Ideas & Actions for the Future coincides with special project launches that were supported by Eyebeam’s Rapid Response for a Better Digital Future – a fully-digital artist fellowship that was launched in response to the onset of Covid-19 crisis, marking the beginning of a new kind of artist support at Eyebeam.

This talk was recorded on February 20, 2021, the fourth (and final) day of the festival celebrating Veil Machine in collaboration with Kink Out Events and Dillon Sung in collaboration with the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition with talks by Sasha Costanza-Chock, Vincent Southerland, Laurie Jo Reynolds and the Chicago 400, conversations with Juno Mac & Ze Royale, and hosted by nash sheard.
