Lecture series “Queer History(s)” at the Hallein Celtic Museum on the occasion of the Pride Season 2022.

The lectures are dedicated to different topics in the history of dealing with homosexuality. The spectrum ranges from ancient images and texts to the persecution of homosexuals in Austria in the 20th century. With this series of events, the Hallein Celtic Museum is setting a sign in the rainbow.

Roman art knows many sexual representations in everyday life. Why do we find huge phallic symbols in public places? Do depictions of people having sex always point to a brothel? The lecture takes us into the pictorial world of the Romans, where sex was nothing embarrassing. A lecture by Barbara Tober from the Hallein Celtic Museum.
