Secession Hall

At the turn of the 20th century, the world was not ready for Gustav Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze, exhibited at the 14th Vienna Secession exhibit because of it’s risqué nature. As an homage, the gallery in Secession Hall in Vienna is hosting nightly the opportunity for interested patrons to live out their wildest fantasies with a sex club located in the hall’s basement. The temporary club—which is open for a limited, two month engagement— is open after hours to members of the public over the age of 18 and boasts a dance floor, erotic body painting, and an S&M room. Ironically, the painting which inspired Swiss artist Christophe Buechel’s swinger’s club sits next to the club itself, but is not viewable during the club’s active hours.

The interactive art project has raised more than a few eyebrows in the local community, but would Gustav Klimt approve? You decide.
