A free guided tour of Objects of Desire with curators in English. Registration is not necessary, only the museum entrance fee must be paid.
This exhibition displays artefacts collected through ethnographically informed interviews conducted over the past year in Berlin. The objects range from the mundane to the bizarre, from a hand painted tea light given by a client to a bicycle used to ride to work whilst wearing heels to a butt tunnel. The objects, and the accompanying stories told by the sex workers who donated them, highlight the material politics of sex work in Berlin today. Through focusing on the personal stories of sex workers and the physical objects involved, Objects of Desire aims to facilitate an understanding of the everyday practice of sex work as work.
Guided tours of Schwules Museum exhibitions are held regularly on Thursdays (6pm) and Saturdays (4pm).
SMU also provides guided tours of exhibitons and the archive for private groups and classes. More information here.
