Zambian Porn

David Chirwa is a Zambian artist whose recent installation examines the way pornography affects Zambian culure. “Before I came here [to England] I would be visiting the Internet cafes in Zambia and I was amazed to find lots of pornographic pop-ups on my computer,” explains Chirwa.

Incidentally, porn is illegal in Zambia. Nevertheless, I often saw men with so-called "blue magazines." Also, there was a movie theater in Lusaka that played X-rated movies.
