Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia?

description

Exhibition catalogue published in following show held at Office for Contemporary Art Norway, Oslo, Norway, November 8, 2008 - January 31, 2009. "'Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia?' is a reader that brings together essays, artists’ writings and works, and countercultural publications to examine the juncture of the political and the erotic during the 1960s and 70s. Adopting as its starting point the postwar perception of Scandinavia as a socialist utopia of sexual freedom, it explores how the avant-garde artistic and cultural production of the time gravitated towards sexual and political liberation. Whatever Happened to Sex in Scandinavia? is the conclusion of a four-year research project, and includes many texts published in English here for the first time, by philosophers, artists, psychologists and theorists such as Knut Ove Arntzen, Stan Brakhage, Norman O. Brown, Valie Export, Öyvind Fahlström, Herbert Marcuse, Jonas Mekas, Henry Miller, Juliet Mitchell, Katti Anker Møller, Jørgen Nash, Håvard Friis Nilsen, Claes Oldenburg, Elise Ottesen-Jensen, Wilhelm Reich, Yvonne Rainer, Jacqueline Rose, Barney Rosset, Barbara Rubin, Jens Jørgen Thorsen and Otto Weininger." -- publisher's statement.
