Studium Generale: Heleen De Bruyne

Studium Generale is an initiative of AP Hogeschool in collaboration with deSingel International Arts Campus and Art House Opera Ballet Flanders. The annual theme for academic year 22-23 is 'experience'.

On Wednesday, March 8, 2023, we welcome: 

  • Speaker: Heleen De Bruyne
  • Lecture title: The (im)possibility of sexual freedom

Since the sexual revolution, we in the West imagine ourselves liberated. Sex is everywhere: on porn sites, in talk shows, podcasts, quality newspapers. Sex is also: a huge industry. But, how successful is this sexual revolution really? If #MeToo teaches us anything, it's that what's called freedom for one person often crosses another's boundaries. So it is time to rethink our sexual mores. But how do we do that, without falling into the dreaded "new prudery"? A lecture on the history of consent and the search for a sexual ethic that does not make all desire disappear.


  • Wednesday, March 8, 2023 from 7 to 9 p.m.
