The Naomi WEAM – The Eroticism of Things: Collections on the History of Sexuality
The exhibition The Eroticism of Things traces the material and immaterial production of eroticism. Using examples culled from the collections of sexologists Magnus Hirschfeld and Alfred Kinsey, as well as from Naomi Wilzig’s collection, it sheds light on differing natures of and intents in collecting and presenting erotic things. This is a joint exhibition by the Research Center for the Cultural History of Sexuality at Humboldt University, Berlin and the Museum of Things. Produced in collaboration with the Kinsey Institute and The Naomi WEAM. Website: www.weammuseum.com.
