About

How has society denied the existence of sexully autonomous women, and what danger belies the historical myth of the succubus?

All the

Advertising sells xxxdaemons for consumerism.
Advertising sells xxxdaemon positivity as a 'lifestyle brand'
Advertising sells xxxdaemon fantasies.

Society denies our reality, yet we walk among you.
We have a voice and we are here to be heard.

On International Women's Day 2020, Femmedaemonium and Special Patrol Group launch their London exhibition in aid of Women's Strike and the fight for equal rights. Showcasing work from sex working womxn and ritual performances from the daemons; We raise hell for our ancestors as we rise in solidarity for our kind.
We seek to dismantle the historical advertising campaign which continues to plague postmodern consumerism:  'SEX SELLS'.
As UK law continues to demonise womxn with autonomy and endangers those who choose the discernible sale of sex, society is forced into denying our very existence.

WHO WE ARE:
FemmeDaemonium is a cooperative performance collective of sex workers and allies which utilises the mythology of the demonization of womxn to make wider statements about marginalised bodies of all kinds. We are inclusive of all gender identities. We are not tolerant to TERF & SWERF ideology. Every FemmeDaemonium production profit shares to ensure each performer is paid for their labour and raises proceeds for a sex worker rights organisation. We are holding an open call for our direct action surrounding the weekend of 8th March, and all artwork donated will be printed for sale with 50/50 proceeds directly to the artist and Women's Strike charity.

Special Patrol Group is a subvertising organization which seeks to reclaim the streets with ad hacking action, because advertising shits in your head!
