Flyer promoting Carnival Knowledge, a multimedia feminist porn group exhibition at Franklin Furnace.

This flyer is from the second iteration of the show that ran January 6–February 4, 1984. Carnival Knowledge was conceived in 1981 as an educational show about reproductive rights and bodily autonomy by a group of artists responding to the “Moral Majority.” The exhibition was divided into two floors with performances scheduled throughout the month of January. The main floor had an adult bookstore with pamphlets, prints, posters, and photography by Kathy Acker, Ida Applebroog, Lynn Tillman, Tuli Kupferberg, and many more. The basement included “imaginary rooms” containing participatory sculpture, games, and video by Annie Sprinkle, Judith Bernstein, Walter Sunday, Mary J Sweeney, and others.
