The human body (from series)

The controversial exhibition presenting the preparations of human bodies returned to Slovakia. It provokes contradictory reactions not only among the expert public mainly because of exceeding the unwritten limits of ethical treatment of human bodies after death. The opponents question the origin of the exhibited bodies, the legality of acquiring them, and equally discussed is the commercial dimension of the exhibition. Invited by the organisers, the opening of the exhibition was attended by the finalists of the Miss competition who readily posed among the exhibits, which also met with embarrassment.
