1000m2 of desire. Architecture and sexuality at the CCCB looks at the way Western society has planned, built and imagined spaces for sex from the 18th century to the present day. With 250 exhibits, including drawings and architectural models, art installations, audiovisuals, books and other materials, the exhibition explores the power of spaces as the driving force of desire and shows how architecture has been a tool that controls behavior and creates gender stereotypes in our patriarchal society.

Curated by the architect Adélaïde de Caters and the CCCB’s head of exhibitions Rosa Ferré, the exhibition will be at the CCCB from 26th October 2016 to 19th March 2017.
