Currently reading : The Institute of SEXOLOGY at The Wellcome Collection
In November the Wellcome Collection in London will be opening their latest exhibition The Institute of Sexology to the pulbic which will be running until September 2015. This impressive new exhibition will explore a vast range of human desire throughout history from exploring a different selection of sex toys to understudying the work or pioneers such as Magnus Hirschfeld, Marie Stopes, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Mead, William Masters, Virginia Johnson and Sigmund Freud.
From Alfred Kinsey’s complex questionnaires to the contemporary National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal), ‘The Institute of Sexology’ will investigate how the practice of sex research has shaped our ever-evolving attitudes towards sexual behaviour and identity.
Featuring over 200 objects spanning art, rare archival material, erotica, film and photography, the exhibition will evolve over the course of the year, with new commissions, live interventions, discussions and performances within the gallery space.
