The Research Center for the Cultural History of Sexuality (Humboldt University, Berlin), the Kinsey Institute (Indiana University, Bloomington), and the Wilzig Erotic Art Museum (WEAM, Miami) are hosting “Exhibitionism: Sexuality at the Museum” an online conference which will bring together researchers, museum practitioners, artists, and educators whose work involves sexuality in museums, collections, and exhibition spaces.

Many museums and exhibition spaces around the world are using artwork, objects, and other materials to talk about sexuality in new ways, prompted in part by a growing number of museum and collections professionals who work with materials connected to human sexuality. Museums are also increasingly becoming spaces for community gathering, creating opportunities for e.g. LGBTIQ* people, sex workers, kink collectives, and people of color organizations to engage audiences in programming that explores a variety of topics related to human sexuality.

This conference will bring together professionals from a diverse array of practices and disciplines from all around the world to explore, learn, connect, and share their experiences about this important topic. It combines pre-produced audio-visual presentations, in-depth live discussions, performances, and online socializing.
