A man is comical to the degree he wants to be a man. The illustration of this is the Humping Pact performance by Diego Agullo and Dmitry Paranyushkin that looks like a historical zoo, the Metropolis proles’ Moloch, and Balkan fertility rituals demonstrated by Marina Abramović in her short of the Destricted project.
The Humping Pact was set up as the metaphor for a romance with a place, and it involuntarily presents a man as he is, the sham monkey king with an absurd bell of his scrotum, and an exclamation mark of his genitalia. He is humbly hungry for general worship, he creates war and religion, and he shudders in despair tortured by his complexes of losing his power against the de-patriarchized world where the notion of “man” itself has long lost its meaning.
The studies that lead to the conclusion that the modern man prefers strong women signifies only that a sexless citizen of the future will emerge only as a result of the phallus’ dissolution in the magical depths the gates of royal vaginas lead to. From ape to man, from man to woman, and from woman to hermaphrodite cyborg, this is the projected evolution for the human population. Thus, the Humping Pact is the ironic and prophetic image. The patriarchal man rejected by the Zeitgeist is fated to hump rusty construction sites and derelict bomb shelters for the reality no longer needs daddies, and some clitorises are longer than dicks these days.
