It’s an “allegorical connection between the conquest of the Americas by the Spanish” and ass fucking, more eloquent and deliberate than you’d think. Spanish artist Santiago Sierra’s Los Penetrados (The Penetrated) is a 45-minute film in eight acts. It subverts the capitalist model by paying poor white/black/women/men for alternating anal penetration in “a mathematical formula” of “fluctuating outcomes” surrounded by mirrors. It’s not PC. It’s not PG. “Los Penetrados,” Santiago Sierra, Sep 9 – Oct 23, Team Gallery, NYC
