According to Culturenet.hr  “provokative series of erotic photography entitled Foxy Mister by Croatian artist Tomislav Gotovac (RIP) will be presented at the exhibition Nude Man in the Leopold Museum, Vienna till 28 January, 2013 as well as within the exhibition The Naked Man at the Lentos KunstMuesum in Linz till 17 february, 2013.”

Leopold museum informs that “previous exhibitions on the theme of nudity have mostly been limited to female nudes. With the presentation “naked men” in the autumn of 2012 the Leopold Museum will be showing a long overdue exhibition on the diverse and changing depictions of naked men from 1800 to the present (…) At the same time, the exhibition will also feature important reference works from ancient Egypt, examples of Greek vase painting and works from the Renaissance.”

Tomislav Gotovac (1937–2010) was not only a charismatic and exuberant person with an uninhibited lifestyle, creator of films, performances, photographs and collages but also somebody who designed a whole complex world for himself (…) Film was Gotovac’s main medium of expression and point of reference.
