EK Interview: That Hipster Porn

art blog - that hipster porn - empty kingdom

There are many sites that we traverse throughout the day in search of artistic inspiration, and THAT HIPSTER PORN is one that our staff likes to follow.  They have a nice thing going, their aesthetic fits well with our sensibilities, and the content, well it’s cool.  Their presentation of the sexual is artistic, at least it must be, because I haven’t once masturbated to the images on the site.  Interestingly enough, this duo also make music and art themselves and we thought it’d be nice to interview them and learn a little more…

INTERVIEW WITH THAT HIPSTER PORN

Tell us a little about yourself, where you come from, etc.

We are two guys round our 30’s and we are based in Stockholm, the Capital of Sweden.
Besides ThatHipsterPorn, one of us is running a record label and the other one is an art director and graphic designer, both of us loves music.

What is your site all about?

The blog is more about love for the sex and eroticism, porn is just a term that we use. We use the word simply as an expression. Our love for the artists we decide to publish is what the forum is about.

You are a DJ Group?   Where can we find your music?

So far we’d played at many venues in Stockholm and Gothenburg area for about ten years now. We love House, Hip Hop and Rock. So far you can only find us at the popular clubs round Stockholm. We don’t put out mixtapes.

What is the connection (if there is any) between your art and your site?

Check for yourself and decide: http://www.slobodanzivic.com

How would you describe your porn sensibilities?

It is hard to describe, but we believe that our passion for contemporary alternative popular culture, sex, people and graphics in general creates the expression that we strive for.

What is your criteria when judging reader submissions?

Isn’t it obvious, great people and a aesthetic composition and if we can make something of it, we use it!

What’s some other dope sites you check out?

What are the donations on your site for?

The donation is for the administration and all the time we’re putting in this project, we also hope we can have parties for our fans in the near future.

What is the line between porn and art?

It is really hard to talk about art in this context. We only try to create sex images in our own visual manner. People love to watch other people.

We believe one other factor that explains why we are reaching out to so many is that our target group also likes fashion and uses our blog as a opposite reaction.

How much porn are you viewing a day?

We are viewing different forums two or three hours every day, forums about music, sex, art, architecture and fashion.

Do you ever receive threatening or obscene emails from readers?

No!

If you could rule the world…
We would travel the world working with great creative artists and keep making the world a inspirational place.
