This exhibition examines the way in which architecture has become an instrument for controlling and modelling sexual behaviours in Western culture. It explores how architectural spaces, both real and imaginary, have been used to construct roles and practices by various institutions throughout history, from the 19th-century bourgeois boudoir to the present day mega-brothels, luxury hotels and sex supermarkets. Curated by Adélaïde de Caters and Rosa Ferré, the exhibition offers an insight into the role architecture plays as a driving force of desire, as it analyses the sexual utopias of Ledoux, Fourier and Sade, the Sixties hippy communes, the 20th-century Paris maisons closes and the Playboy clubs of the Cold War. It also considers pornography as part of mainstream culture, the role of the media, cyberspace and virtual reality, and questions where our imagination has ended up in terms of places for desire?
