The "Eromania (God Is a Dead Smoker)" performance at the OSMOSCOSMOS exhibition is a radiophonic adaptation of the play "Eromania (History X)", devised in 2019 by Caroline Bernard and Karim Bel Kacem at the Théâtre de Saint-Gervais in Geneva. On stage, three Romanian camgirls told their story and talked about their profession. By means of interposed webcam, the camgirls perform erotic acts for men willing to pay lots of money for private shows. Representing one of the country’s major industries, they work from very well set up studios that train them and ensure that they are highly visible. At the time of globalisation 2.0, they crystallise a state of the world, money, desire and sex through a globalised machine for the creation of images. The "Eromania (God Is a Dead Smoker)" performance made with David Collin and his LABO (the radio creativity studio of RTS), in collaboration with the director Fabrice Aragno, goes over the 18 months Caroline Bernard spent in the camgirls’ studios. In the context of the OSMOSCOSMOS exhibition, they share the microphone with the philosopher Fabien Vallos, accompanied by Joëlle Nicolas (Verveine) who plays music specifically composed for the project live.
