The exhibition has been until now very successful with public and critique in its international tour in some of the main European cities such as Lausanne, Paris, Brussels, Vienna, is now in Florence and will go after in Prague and last in Australia.
The exhibition includes about 70 photographs and other videos which caused a scandal: discussed and polemical snapshots, often finished in court and which provoked “controversies”.
