This exhibit examines changes that took place in sexuality and morality in Europe between the two world wars. A newfound freedom in customs found fertile terrain for expression in art – drawing, printing, painting, sculpture – which captures this nonconformity against the moralizing norm. Expressions of freedom flourished even while censorship continued in repressive situations. Divided into 7 sections: The Body, Bloomsbury & Aesthetics, Trauma & Desire, Masks, Sex, Salaciousness, Totalitarianism.
