Bebe Books Calendar is here! For the 2023 edition, we invited the queen of juicy surrealism Cheng-Hsu Chung.
Cheng-Hsu is a Taiwanese animation artist and director based in Berlin. Chung’s practice focuses on using bizarre images and character performances in animation to articulate the changing nature of emotion, erotic relationships, and the experiences queer bodies encounter in today’s queer culture.
The calendar celebrates queer desire with a series of surreal pornographic illustrations. Pornography oftentimes serves as an introduction to sex when queer people discover their sexuality, sometimes as a tool for people to fulfill their emotional and sexual intimacy, and sometimes as a fantasy to escape from reality. Inspired by its versatility, we decide to give it an extra purpose this time: you can count every new day in the new year with these joyful naked bodies.
