Gallery adds swinger wing

An Austrian gallery is encouraging visitors to confront their sexual inhibitions by making them walk through a swingers' club to reach an exhibition.

The Secession in Vienna has temporarily incorporated a sex club named 'Element6' as part of a Gustav Klimt project by Swiss artist Christoph Buechel.

The swingers are not there during the day, but their mattresses and erotic pictures are.

A spokeswoman said Buechel hoped to spark a stir reminiscent of the scandal Klimt caused when his 'Beethoven Frieze' was first exhibited in 1902.
