Beyond the Curtains

Whatever you think you know about the Red Light District, the truth goes deeper than what meets the eye. On this tour, we break down taboos, provide a history of sexual repression and exploitation under patriarchy, and envision a more generative future for the district.

Explore where our ideas around sex come from. We’ll look into the long history of sexual suppression, abuse and exploitation, and the complexities of prostitution. Besides all the regular information about the Red Light District we will share our pioneering vision for the future of this area with you.

Ready to have a look beyond, not just behind, the curtains?
It’s gonna be an eye (and mind) opening experience!

Giving Back: The Beyond The Curtains Tour starts and finishes at the Upcycle store. We take a radically different approach by collecting waste that we upcycle to convert into souvenirs for you to take home.
