Riotously bright and optimistic

The IET

Taking inspiration from London’s saunas, sex clubs and cruising spots, ‘Alien Sex Club’ explores the evolution of HIV from an incurable disease to a treatable condition. It combines cutting-edge scientific enquiry with satirical cultural artefacts and encourages you to get lost and explore the maze for yourself.
