Myths narrate a sacred history. They relate events that took place in a primordial time, the fabled time of the beginnings. – Eliade, The Sacred and the Profane.

NSFW/SVILOVA gave a lecture about the symbolic, economic and social significance of the Mexican wrestling scene. The presentation included (amongst many other things) sci-fi films, never seen footage and bootlegged toys.

The event was organised by Luftslottet, a cross-cultural organisation focused in the research and promotion of outsider art, subcultures and many more!
