IQ kurbanje


In the summer of 2012, the town of Maribor got its first Red Light District. But not an ordinary one – here, whores of different professional profiles offer not their bodies, but their minds. Young intellectuals serve their clients with conversations and thoughts on art, philosophy, and life; for a fee.

One of the principal intentions of the street action was to warn people of the underrated and of the often negatively valued intellectual work. As one of the young “workers” Miša Gams, said: “Our generation feels marginalized, like pawns without power, without a voice”. However, this intention turned out to
be one of many: through the weeks, the event accumulated in interesting stories, fun, and less fun experience, enabling the whores and their clients to face new revelations and unexpected turns. Maybe even earning something.
