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 international perception of Scandinavia during these years as a utopian region of socialism and sexual freedom, it explores how artistic and cultural production of the time reflected an experimental impulse that closely engaged with movement towards sexual and political liberation.
The book is the conclusion of a four-year research project that included an exhibition and a public programme. It includes many texts published in English here for the first time.
