Overview

When we think of Berlin in the roaring twenties, many images stream forth, but the most endearing is of the Alexanderplatz, the heart of nighttime Berlin and capital of amusement in Europe.

With such a sensuous history, the Erotic Museum has an appropriate home in Berlin. The collection is vast, recording erotic life from classical antiquity to the body-cult in the late 20th century. This collection of eroticism spans 2,000 years of the history of mankind.

In this book, Professor Hans-Jurgen Dopp brings together over 400 photographs, objects, prints and paintings of each phase of human life, illustrating how erotic preferences changed throughout the centuries. The Erotic Museum treats eroticism with taste and delicacy thanks to its author, who has written extensively in the art world.
