The Triennale Design Museum presents KAMA. Sex and Design, a great exhibition about the relationship between eros and design. The title refers to the Hindu God of sexual pleasure, human love and desire. KAMA tries to deal with one of the more exasperated contemporary “ghosts”, but in the meantime the more removed. The exhibition wants to investigate how sexuality incorporates itself in the things and makes them medium of knowledge. For the designers, but also for the users.
The heart of the exhibition is a survey, curated by Silvana Annicchiarico, from historical, mythic and anthropological roots until today, with more than 200 among archeological finds, drawings, pictures, objects and artworks by International artists and designers.
