for art’s sake.

7 May

18,000 people went naked in Mexico City today, as they posed for US photographer Spencer Tunick.

Tunick has taken group-nude pictures all over the world, including in cities like:  New York, Bruges, Buenos Aires, Buffalo, London, Lyon, Melbourne, Montreal, San Sebastián, São Paulo, Caracas, Newcastle/Gateshead, Vienna, Düsseldorf, and Santiago.

His work confronts ideas of the social, political and legal issues surrounding art in the public sphere while also exploring the current attitudes toward nudity, sexuality, body image and all the other emmotions that arise when we take off our clothes.
