dc.description Mariah Larsson diskuterar den komplexa relationen mellan konstfilm och pornografisk film och de könspolitiska implikationerna av drömmen om den goda pornografin. en
dc.description.abstract The dream of the good pornography today, draws its argument from a feminist anti-porn analysis that concludes that pornography is an expression of the patriarchal society where women are being obejctified and degraded. However, in the 1960s, there was another dream of the good pornography, one which claimed that the existing pornography was bad from an aesthetic point of view. It had to do with the fact that pornography was forbidden in Sweden until 1971, and one argument for legalization was that porn would then become much better. The article examines the dream of the good pornography, the relationship between art (cinema) and porn (film), and what happens to the issue of gender when the dividing line between the two categories is questioned. Historically, the relationship between art cinema and the pornographic film is complex and the two categories that at a first glance are so easy to distinguish, have lived in a mutual dependency of each other. Art films with sexually explicit material pushed the limits for censorship during the 1960s, but at the same time, the success of art films with sexually explicit material often relied on a censorship that allowed sex in art but not for pornographic purposes. The undefined border between art and pornography also bring to the fore a discussion of the gender ascribed to each category. Art, belonging to the realm of modernism and high culture, has, by some theorists, been regarded as masculine, whereas porn, belonging to what has sometimes been regarded as the feminine mass culture, is often discussed and analyzed as a male genre. At the same time, one point of departure for the dream of the good pornography in the 1960s as well as in the late 1990s and early 2000s, is woman, her sexuality and her consumption of pornography. en
