dr death and the eternal one night stand
since a while there are a lot of discussions going on in germany if it should be allowed or not* for günther hagen aka dr death to show two corpses in sexual positions....even though europe is very open to a lot of sexual stuff we still get a bit nervous and "home baked" when it comes to sex&church and to sex&death....its the whole "it degrades the dead people"-discussion which makes me really mad...but before we go on..lets introduce ourselfes to mister and misses dead couple..or no..not mister and not misses..since those two never had met before you can count that as a one night stand..even though its an eternal one...
51 years old, from the city of mainz, he was a sportsman all his life and you can see a broken leg bone which didnt healed too well
HER: 58 years old, from munich
both: were heavy smoker and died from lung cancer...she signed a contract that she actually wanted to be displayed in sexual poses..due to a promise she gave one which she couldnt make come true during her life (i wonder what kind of promised that was)..he signed a contract which says that dr death could do with his corpse what ever he feels like since he thought of günther hagen as a great artist...
me: i have seen the exibition already a few years ago...and even though i wouldnt go there again to see two skinned off and peeled off people i still think its okay to show them in public...i mean, those two knew whats going to happen to them...they agreed...and i know how.."interesting" people can get about hagens work..a friend of mine who lost her baby due complications through the act of giving birth even said that she would have donored her babys body to hagen if she had knew him back then...too me thats a bit over the top...i could never display my babies body with a drawer in its chest like it was some salvador dali painting..or peeled of like a little shrimp...but thats not what i wanna talk about...this was just a sample about how people think about hagens work and how far they might go...but what about our eternal one night standers...should it be okay to show them in an exibitions spot light or not...tell me your opinion open or anonym..just feel free to speak your mind
