The exhibition presents Arthur Schnitzler (1862–1931) and his time when the people of Vienna and other Westerns metropolises have been obsessed by eroticism. It was the time when Sigmund Freud, psychoanalysis, Surrealism, ... opened the eyes to the thinking and feeling of human beings.

Stanley Kubrick’s film “Eyes wide shut” shows us that this power of Schnitzler's time still holds on. new definitions of gender >>>
