A man sold his back skin to be tattooed and publicly exposed during his life and after


Did you answered my questions ? OK, it’s not important.But it was a way to inform you about the fact that one man, Tim Steiner, got exactly these things in his life. Time Steiner has an elaborate tattoo on his back that was designed during 40 work hours by a famous Belgian artist, Wim Delvoye. His back skin was sold to a German art collector, Rik Reinking, in 2008, and when Steiner dies his back is to be skinned, and the skin framed permanently, taking up a place in Reinking’s personal art collection. His first first exhibition took place in Zurich in June 2006 and after he participated in many others expositions: 2008: Art Farm, Beijing; SH Contemporary Art Fair, Shanghai; 2008-9: ZKM, Karlsruhe; 2009: Rathaus and Leuphana University, Luneburg; 2010-11: Hochschule der Kunste, Berne; 2011: Kunsthalle, Osnabruck; Robilant & Voena, London; 2011-12: Mona, Hobart; 2012: Zone Contemporaine, Berne; Louvre, Paris; 2013: Gewerbemuseum, Winterthur; Sammlung Reinking, Hamburg; 2014: Weserburg Museum, Bremen; Haus fur Kunst Uri, Altdorf; 2015: Strada Fossaccio, Viterbo; Gewerbemuseum, Hamburg; Civita di Bagnoregio, Rome; 2016: Mona, Hobart.“I did this for 1500 hours. It was by far the most outrageously intense experience of my life,” Tim said. His life is unique. Nobody in the world is doing such things.
