«It explores the changes in sexuality and morality in the European context of the interwar period. At that time, the impact of conservatism on the laws and the permanence of religious norms can be observed. It is also important to take into account the effects of the First World War on the population. The social crisis in which European societies were immersed and the desire to live after a fateful period stimulated the appearance of behaviors of individuals and groups that deviated from the dominant rules" Explain John Vincent Aliaga, curator of the exhibition. "Art was a territory in which there were manifestations of that freedom of customs" he concludes.
