Sade was a clandestine and censored writer who was imprisoned, but is now a classic author for French literature. He was acclaimed as a revolutionary who supported freedom, whilst arousing scandal and outrage.

The exhibition looks at the stereotypes associated with his name and explores the aesthetic, philosophical and political implications of his legacy. Sade challenges us to confront the most disturbing aspects of human nature.

The exhibition opens on Thursday 11th of May and will run until Sunday 15th of October 2023.
