E · A week of exploring Spain in the buff at Sierra Natura [3 November 2019]

NEWT now also in Spain since October 2019.

Richard Foley (England, than Germany, now Spain) founded NEWT (Naked European Walking Tour) in Austrian Alps. First backpacking, it turned then into a hut stay in Austrian Alps.

During the Austrian Naked European Walking Tour (NEWT) in July 2019, Jane and Nick (England) developed the idea of a similar week in Spain. Clarisse and Pascal (France) made it happen and initiated a week of hikes in the buff in October 2019 in the surroundings of the naturist campsite “Sierra Natura” in Spanish mountains southwest of Valencia on a height of approx. 800 m above sea level.

They offered a couple of hikes in the buff in the surroundings of this naturist campsite. It became the first Spanish NEWT and, thanks to the active participation of naturists from five countries (France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands), it was already international again.

NL · Naked Tour in Kunsthal Rotterdam: Guided tour through exhibition “I’m Your Mirror” [7 October 2019]

Since 2017, Kunsthal in Rotterdam has been organising its “Naked Tour” every year with great success.

Kunsthal Rotterdam, “Naked Tour”: “I'm your mirror”

The museum offers from time to time, to walk nude through the exhibition. Each time, the guided “Naked Tour” attracts more and more naturists.

This year, it took place on 28 September. By looking at herself in the mirrors of this Venetian mask, the naked visitor turns herself into part of the artwork …The previously registered, approx. 60 visitors could visit the works of the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos undressed. Four museum guides explained the individual artworks to groups of younger and older nude visitors including a grandmother and her two granddaughters.

The exhibited works this time had no relation to the nude person or body, unlike so often on naturist guided tours through museums. They were oversized objects, with which the artist satirically mocked the “roles” of men and women in society – for example in a pair of high heels made of chrome kitchen pots or by transforming a helicopter, i.e. a typical “male” object, Different perspective, new insights?into an extremely feminine “lilicopter” with feminine attributes.

In the Netherlands, too, The discrepancy between the hard metal of the artwork and the soft construction of the human body renders visitors themselves part of the exhibition. A tram of line 23, which passes the museum just outside on Westzeedijk Straat, also gives the impression, that it is one of the artworks …media interest in events, where you can be nude, is growing. This is already evident from the fact, that a photographer and a cameraman accompanied the naturists and Algemeen Dagblad, second largest newspaper of the Netherlands, reported about it in an article “In je blootje door de Kunsthal: kijken naar de expositie en een beetje naar elkaar” (ad.nl) on 29 September 2019. Already in 2018, the countrywide known presenter Lauren Verster informed about the Naked Tour in the Kunsthal at that time in her TV show “Lauren!”.

We learned during our visit, that there shall be another “Naked Tour” in 2020 – natury will inform you.
