After an incredibly successful first year, German Pinazo will start the second chapter of his sexy monthly party, „Bears, Beards, Beers“ in Berlin with internationally-acclaimed gay artist, Bruce La Bruce! For the last year, Pinazo has been juxtaposing and infusing the Berlin party scene with works of photography as well as other visual and performance art pieces. In the first year of the party, Pinazo worked with Berlin-based photographer and friend, Ivo Hofste creating images that play with notions of sexuality and sensuality.
For the next year, however, Pinazo has some exciting changes planned… twelve to be exact. In the upcoming installment of BBB, he will be working with a different artist each month to create new and striking photographs. Asked to describe his images, Pinazo explains that he seeks to channel imagery reminiscent of Tom of Finland. But unlike the illustrations, Pinazo uses real men to create sexy postcard snapshots.
And to kick-off this exciting new chapter, Pinazo is working with one of his artistic idols, Bruce La Bruce! The internationally-acclaimed photographer, film-maker, and artist will be showcasing some of his work at BBBLAB Edition on October 14, in Berlin. Pinazo has been following La Bruce since he was 19-years-old and they became friends while La Bruce was working in Berlin. Through this BBB, Pinazo hopes to expose and introduce La Bruce’s work to a new and wider audience.
A melding of punk and queer, La Bruce came to fame in the 1980s and 1990s with his controversial artwork. His images often deal with themes of fetishism, violence, sexuality, BDSM, and gender. In addition to his photography, he is also known for his films including Hustler White and L.A. Zombie.
BBBLAB is on October 14, at 23:00 at Untertage in Berlin.
