Quote:The Baltic Circle contemporary theatre festival has been asked by police for a more modest version of its latest work. The exhibit should feature an elderly, naked woman in a glass case, but Helsinki police have demanded that she cover up.

Dries Verhoeven’s work Ceci n’est pas mon corps deals with approaches to ageing. Tuomo Tuohimaa of Helsinki police says that families with children might have been offended by the nakedness on show in the work.

The original version has the older lady sitting naked in the glass case, wearing the mask of a younger woman. Organisers say Helsinki is the sixth city they’ve toured with the show, and the first in which nudity has been a problem.

I have to agree with this decision actually. Although most Finns have absolutely no problems with nudity, there's a time and a place for everything.
This looks like installations in public space.

Is war allowed in Helsinki?! meaning is the drafting or the luring in with money to voluntarily sign up and join into the organized training of the youth of Finland transformed into human killing machine soldiers still socially acceptable?! for if it is? and it probably is! then banning the body beautiful while not banning the war evil is stunningly frightening and an amazingly trapped in denial mind set that must be eliminated the world over or that everlasting cult of death and destruction brain disease of ours will be the extinction of humanity someday!

Conscription in Finland is part of a general compulsion for national military service for all adult males.

Saunas, even in the military, are strictly egalitarian places. No titles or hierarchies are used in sauna.

Nobody has a problem with nudity, how would you handle being invited into a Finnish sauna? Would you be comfortable getting naked in a group? Even mixed?

It's not about nudity itself, it's just in a public place where I for instance don't care to run into naked people.

you and AS are up late.. count sheep??


i have no problem with the art work being displayed..

i would have a big problem being in a mixed sauna, not a male only one (lol), but not for any sexual thing, our culture is not comfortable nude as such, thats a very Scandanavian thing..

Yet at the same time most people dont seem to mind because they dont seem to be doing anything to stop running into people or going into graveyards filled with people continuously maimed and crippled and blinded and emotionally shattered and killed by war like wtf is wrong with us?! so its easier to live in denial of the evil that has consumed them by calling them heroes instead like wtf is wrong with us?! so for whom it may concern just check out my signature thread below for the insidiously soul crushing answer and realize that war is pornographic and evil not the body beautiful...

The only thing that the sicko muslim extremists understand is violence so the only way to stop them is with extreme force for they have sown the wind and so they should be made to reap a terrible whirlwind for out from within the flaming wreckage of their annihilation will arise the salvation of countless millions of future people who will be able to live in a better world without worrying about being stoned and gang raped and hanged and beheaded and slaughtered by them...
