The Dirty Show is open to artists from anywhere in the world,
providing the work is good and erotic, and they can get it
PORN OR ART?
"This is the question most media poses. The answer is
simple. It is 100%, genuine art. We have done extensive research
on porn, logging in countless hours on the internet —
we know porn, intimately. While some pieces, to the
layman, may appear to be pornographic, it is as artistic as
any stuff you would see in a museum. There have been a few
pieces which some feel are not “dirty”. This to
is a misconception, most likely due to the lack of artistic
education of the viewer."
