This pubblication was made in occasion of Whistle, Minotaur! 09 "Nudism, A Furious Undressing",
an exhibition curated by Francesco Cavaliere and Marcel Turkowsky at GRIMMUSEUM, Berlin.
It contains works by Benjamin Altermatt, Massimiliano Bomba and Xavier Garcia Bardon.
"Nudism, often referring to an alternative to "Naturism", the free speech movement of the body becomes a starting point for a series of upcoming episodes.
This viewing assumes to move a sense closer to a free and furious experience in a multi dimensional space.
A polyphonic story told becomes more of a panoramic view than an attempt to reach a heterogeneous form."
