In this commentary, the author breaks down the implications of nudity in Florentina Holzinger's performances and what it could mean for the audience and the players. She ventures a self-experiment at the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz.
In a lecture for UdK students, Holzinger begins to report that she comes more from sport, but with an aversion to authority, sport was not an option for her. Initially, she was not accepted by any dance school until it worked out in Amsterdam. "I never had to attend an audition [after university]," she continues. And "I want to be honest with you", she says, adding that she has always lied to the press when asked what role nudity plays for her on stage. "When you are coming from a school where you're told to do something out of nothing, it might be a good idea to take off your clothes, if you know what I mean." She laughs. "- because there is at least something to look at." The conceptual development of a confrontation with nudity and her original impulse to take off her clothes is thus first and foremost the well-known recipe for success "Sex Sells" today in a new, marketing-strategically clever, seemingly feminist packaging. Attention economy instead of artistic expression. Seen in this light, the emancipation from the objectification of the female body results in a fashion that markets itself well.
