Museum Kunst Palast
We were invited to participate in a performance evening at one of the world’s finest museums, Museum Kunst Palast in Dusseldorf, Germany. The evening would be part of a magnificent, huge art exhibition, “Diana and Actaeon: The Forbidden Glimpse of the Naked Body.” With a title like that of course we had to get naked and we did!
First, Annie performed her signature piece, “A Public Cervix Announcement.” This is only the second time in fifteen years that she has done that. Second, we did a one-hour “Naked Kiss” in an intimate gallery where drawings of nudes by Joseph Beuys, Picasso, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Emile Nolde, Rodin and others. It was amazing to kiss among these masters. Thirdly we did a new work called “Nude Spoons” in the lobby of the museum. We entered, removed our elegant evening attire, and spooned naked on a black leather couch during the last hour of the evening as people were leaving the space. People could see us from the two floors above as well. The museum gave us the most beautiful flower bouquets in the world. Photos by Dr. Joerg Weule.
