Dress And The Law

(UN)DRESS & THE LAW: NUDITY&OFFENCE AGAINST PUBLIC DECENCY IN GREECE

An interactive investigative intervention on the relationship between the naked body and legislation

(UN)DRESS&THELAW-1

When does dress become “law” for the naked body? When does the site of nudity become a criminal offence? In what way nudity – art – legislation are related to one another? What does “offence of public decency” mean?  On the occasion of the exhibition of the Chinese artist and poet Ren Hang at ATOPOS Contemporary Visual Culture (72, Salaminos Str.), the team of “Dress & the Law” project investigates the relationship between the naked body and the law on Wednesday June 3rd between 17:00 –  22:00. Clarifying meanings and looking into the current legislation in Greece, the team invites visitors at the same time to “play”: to solve a crime and to impart justice.
