I remember seeing videos about Torture Garden on the television at a very young age and how I become totally fascinated with the fetish scene. TG parties seeemd to me so mythetical, the ultimate reference of the fetish scene. I never got the chance to experience the original TG events, when the fetish scene was just emerging but it seemed to pure in it's intentions.
I remember they officil symbol, very Nazistic and Punkish at the same time. A symbolic reference to the perversion of power and order. I'm also collecting books, flyers and reference material from the origins of the fetish scene and movement, in hopes of having a deeper understanding of fetishism and it's cultural impact.
