Every year since 2017, the Center Pompidou has offered a guest intellectual the opportunity to develop a thought project. For the year 2020, the institution is pleased to welcome Paul B. Preciado: philosopher and curator, he is one of the most important contemporary thinkers in the studies of gender, sexual politics and the body.

On this occasion, Paul B. Preciado offers a public and performative seminar around a new history of sexuality, more than forty years after the fundamental work of Michel Foucault. Started last March and interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, the seminar returns in compact form from October 15 to 19, and is transformed into a “revolutionary cluster”.
