About

Along history, inventions have allowed the development of our society farther than any other known species in the world. By questioning the imperfection of the natural, we have managed to reinterpret the reality to create more perfect, specific and enduring beings. Furthermore, the use of technology and devices has supposed a major change in our way of dealing with health or life and medicine has been growing very rapidly since the XIX century. 

This project focuses on one of the most controversial topics that emerged in the Victorian era in northern Europe, female sexuality, the science of orgasms and its relation with medicine. A series of small drawings narrates the history of female masturbation devices since they were originated as a treatment for the cure of hysteria until their use nowadays. 

The exhibition aims to lead the viewer to a different understanding of these elements and controversial issues that often tend to be silenced. For that, it tries to avoid the prejudices from mainstream traditions that have shaped our understanding of sexuality in order to delve into other cultures and contexts in which these issues have been treated under new and revealing points of view.
