Dress code: policemen and their tattoos again and ‘skin in the employment game’.

‘Interesting news’: ‘John McCaine’s daughter addicted to tattoos’.

Finally, something ‘highbrow’ again: a link to a German article about Herman Nitsch and his museum (sent in by a friend) and an interview with David Cronenberg who briefly discusses his view on human bodies.

    I`m going to see that Herrmann Nitsch museum in two weeks – that`s going to be interesting!

    I didn’t link to the website cuz it seems to be under construction now. Hopefully you’ll share your impressions with me!

    Coincidentally, I’m in the middle of reading a book about artists using their bodies as medium and Nitsch is in there, too (plus Ron Athey, Orlan, Stelarc etc.)

    artists who use their bodies as medium – now, that`s something I learned to *really” understand and appreciate only recently (you should know how that came to be… :)). I used to find Nitsch interesting more for his controversial, “in your face” concepts that sparked debates every time he pushed the boundaries of taste a little more over the years. What`s the title of that book you mentioned, anyway – it sounds like something interesting!
