Sex Workers’ Rights
Established in 1999, CODE:RED is a complex participatory project researching various aspect of sex work as a specific parallel economy and as a form of economic “disobedience”. It encourages discussions and works as an ongoing participatory interdisciplinary platform, which in a series of projects studies the possibilities of analogue economic models of various isolated groups and minorities.
"Pogačar’s approach to the subject of parallel economies – human trafficking and the related sex industry being an inherent part of them – is based on trust and open communication between the artist and the other participants. The project regularly involves the artist initiating close collaboration between participating art institutions and organisations advocating sex workers’ human rights", wrote the exhibition’s curator, Alenka Gregorič.
