“The first edition of Body and Freedom occured in the small city of Biel/Bienne (Switzerland), August 2015, with authorisation and financial support from the city: www.bodyandfreedom.com. The high interest of artists and a wide international and national media echo has shown the importance of a festival presenting artistic statements with the naked body in public space and confronting it with its architecture, passers-by, rules, laws and medias.
The second edition will take place in Zurich and invites 18 performance projects. […] In addition, an evening program inside will offer talks and lectures giving insights in practices and meanings of the naked body in past and present, looking back several centuries as well as widening the scope of our interpretations of the effects of naked performing in public today.”

“The city and the canton of Zurich, as potential major sponsors, do not support the Body and Freedom Festival, they prioritise in a different manner. The financing of the festival is therefore dependent on donations and generous privately granted benefits.
