NL · 2019 'Naked Tour' in the Kunsthal Rotterdam
After successful nude evenings in 2017 and 2018, the Kunsthal Rotterdam again offered a Naked Tour this year, this time as part of the exhibition "I'm your mirror" featuring art of the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos.
Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad (AD) reported on Monday in an article "In je blootje door de Kunsthal: kijken naar de expositie en een beetje naar elkaar" with photo and video. "We wanted to experience something different than usually.", explained Julia Frickl, visitor of the special evening opening time, to the newspaper. "You make yourself very vulnerable, looking at art and being in the nude. And let's be honest – of course you also want to see some nude bodies." Roland van der Kleij, who has already taken part in all the previous Naked Tours, finds it pleasant, according to the newspaper report, to be among "like-minded people." – "The distance between people is smaller this way".
