Contemporary art has taken various forms over the last few decades; installations, performances, photography, ready-made objects, documents, they are all examples of elements of art in today’s art scene, which is commonly referred to as conceptual art. The metamorphosis of the art object and the artist has transformed the art making to a holistic, interactive process, thus, turning the product to a timeline consisting of making, presenting, comprehending and reinterpreting.
Spencer Tunick is an American artist who has been documenting live nude in public since 1992, by video and photography. He has made large scale installations in various cities in the world, such as Montreal, Barcelona, Melbourne and London and he has been to every continent, from Europe to Antarctica, photographing nude individuals, all in public spaces. Naked World: America Undercover is an HBO documentary presenting the artistic voyage of Tunick in his intercontinental project. It is the second documentary in the series, following Naked States (2000), about Tunick’s journey, photographing, throughout United States.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
