Be part of the "naked" history

Oh, well, I am not so sure how to put a title on this. But it fits, don’t you think so?
Of course, I am talking about Spencer Tunick’s Vienna project. Mr. Tunick is known for his nude installation. The effect forms abstract images due to the huge number of persons closely placed together.
Spencer Tunick and Greenpeace
Are you interested to be part of this spectacle? Are you ready to strip and huddle with other naked individuals? Are you just a regular guy or gal? That means, you are not an exhibitionist or a passionate nudist. Yes, funny is it. Read again, if you are a sex maniac, then don’t join. Something like that.
In one of the articles about him, Channel 4 wrote:

Nudity is not new in art and, in this case, being naked in urban settings highlights the contrast of the natural human body and the environments we create to live in. Tunick states, ‘I feel that my nudes are not controversial. The controversy lies in the fact that I am using the city as my landscape.’

Next stop is in Vienna, on May 11 at the Ernst Happel Stadium.
You are not paid to pose but the first 2,008 registered participants will receive a free return train ticket within Austria from the ÖBB.
If it is not enough then maybe a limited edition photograph of the installation in the Ernst-Happel-Stadium will suffice. I know it sounds not too convincing.
So if you are too shy to join the naked hoopla then perhaps taking a peek of what happened on May 11 might interest you (just like me). An exhibition follows on June 23, 8.30 pm at Kunsthalle Wien public space karlsplatz.
Are you ready to join?

    […] Or maybe you are just wrapping up the rest of the day at the Ernst Happel Stadion after stripping for Spencer Tunick. […]
