In the early 1900s the psychoanalyst-anarchist Otto Gross was advocating ‘free love’ and new kinds of relationships between men and women. This conference addressed the utopian vision of ‘sexual revolution’, examining issues of sex, gender, race and the body, and asks whether sexual emancipation is indeed possible.
