Diego Agulló & Dmitry Paranyushkin - The Humping Pact. Vienna Mission

“Buildings need love, too.” Heute

“Naked people are occupying the city – a declaration of love to Vienna!” Österreich

Diego Agulló’s & Dmitry Paranyushkin’s Humping Pact is an intimate covenant between sex and architecture. In body-intensive interventions, the two performers mate, mount and copulate with public buildings. Through these hump-ins of the selected objects, they get to know and love the mostly old structures. An intimate, personal relationship to the architectural sites comes into being which celebrates the human body: its longing for exploration, dissemination and stimulation. The Humping Pact is an aesthetic meditation on the nature of dissemination, illusions of greatness and the human desire to believe in the senseless and conceive the impossible. After Diego Agulló & Dmitry Paranyushkin already indecently assaulted the law courts in Brussels, a former Soviet military base in Latvia and an abandoned coal mine, among other locations, places such as Schönbrunn Palace or brut itself will become the objects of desire during their Vienna Mission.
