This 2021 calendar is a collaboration between VICE, ILA Foundation and the artists who were kind enough to share their work with us:
Charlotte Abramow, Athos Burez, Elie Carp, Maxime Fauconnier, Antoine Grenez, Sophie Hemels, Bob Jeusette, Arnoldas Kubilius, Mous Lamrabat, Olivia Lifungula, Mayli Sterkendries, Jonas Van der Haegen, and Adieu et Bonne Chance.
All profits of this project will go to Utsopi vzw, the union that represents and supports all sex workers in Belgium - regardless of gender, origin, legal status, or subsector (street, windows, club, escort, porn,…). With this project, we hope to finish 2020 on a positive note and create a beautiful clean slate for 2021.
‘Make 2021 Sexy Again’ is an art project for charity first and foremost. The title is a cheeky farewell to Donald Trump, Miss Corona, and other poltergeists that dominated 2020 minds and news headlines. The photos in this calendar showcase under-represented beauty and sensuality in their own way, but of course, 12 months is too short to represent all that is sexy out there. Don’t be mistaken, this is not an invitation to go out there and grab just anyone by the pussy without consent. Instead, this calendar is a daily reminder to appreciate beauty and sensuality in everyone and everything, and make 2021 sexy again.
