About the exhibition

Sex plays an important role not just for humans; it also acts as the engine of evolution for animals, plants and fungi. Sexual reproduction led to a massive variation in forms – new genetic mixes resulted in new characteristics that were advantageous to enable survival in a changing environment.

Smells and colours, light signals and song attract sexual partners; bridal presents are presented, rivals beaten, courtship dances performed, chase is given, and much more besides. The sexual act often leads to a war of sperm, which ultimately results in protected – or indeed deserted – offspring, in the continuation of life.
