Well, why not make this "Art-Week" and jump into the spandex pants of John Sex.

Sporting a 20" blonde hairdo he placed himself somewhere between traditional gay campness and pop art which went down well with the revitalized art- and club scenes in New York in the 1980's

Defining himself as a singer and performer he had music videos done that really stand out for their use of the technological possibilities at the time while also making fun of the media itself and popculture in general.

Watch "Rock your Body"

Or see John performing with the sweetness of "I want to be in the Jet Set"

(if you're not using a Macintosh you´ll need QuickTime on your computer)

Like many other great figures of the era, John Sex became a victim of AIDS and passed away in 1989.
