This event has ended.

“Venus in Furs” is the major work of the 19th century Austrian writer Leopold von Sacher-Masoch,” from whose name the terms sadism and masochism are derived. The novella is a masterful fantasy about the pain and pleasure of the beautiful fur-wearing Lady Wanda and her lover Severin. In its portrayal of submission to cruel fetishes and control through pleasure, it presents sadism as a mirror reflecting reverse images. The works of art in this exhibition are based on Masoch’s depictions of control, pervision, and transitions from pain to pleasure.
