(NATS UP German)

FOR THIS VISITOR, "It is something unusual, HE SAYS. But I find it interesting to stroll through a museum naked. I've always wanted to do that."

THE EXHIBIT IS ABOUT THE CHANGING DEPICTIONS OF THE MALE FORM ... FROM 1800 TO NOW.

AND PEOPLE WANTED TO SEE IT ... NUDE.

(NATS UP German)

THIS MUSEUM OFFICIAL SAYS "There was simply demand. We got requests from all over the world from people who were inspired by the exhibition 'naked men' and who asked us - can we visit the exhibition naked?"

A CASE OF LIFE ... IMITATING ART.
