    this is plain stupidity, Nan Goldin’s work has and is a fantastic portray of life and captures so many important parts of life in her photography, I personally own The devil playground book, and I am able to distinguish art from porn, the world can’t keep censoring everything just because a few sick individuals are going to see things and use them the wrong way, those sort of people will always exist but that does not mean that the world and art should be changed to molly collie them.

    we are in a world that does not have nude poeple, we all have an ass what is the problem showing it , nakedness should be the rule. preverts come more because of the frustration engenderd by religions . than by open societys, my french BF showed and nake picture of his sister and he had bad remaks sice when nudity is a crime , john wilfre sharp

    My family and I our deeply offened over Nan Goldin image.The Baltic Art Gallery was formally Baltic Flourmill owned by my family. The building still bares my great,great uncle’s name. He was the methodist philantrapist Joseph Rank who was a man of deep religious conviction and deep family values. Poor man would be spinning in his grave if he knew a building baring his name was involved in such a scandal.

    I suspect, Pauline, that your great, great uncle did a bit of spinning in the aforementioned grave when you sold the bloody flourmill in the first place.I would imagine however that the huge payment you got for it somewhat eased your conscience.For future reference, if you’re selling off any more of the family silver that you’re ancestors worked themselves to the grave to build up, and you want to have any control over what goes on once you’ve sold it, then include a covenant.This will give you ever right to complain, unlike now, when quite frankly, you don’t have any.

  5. ok im going to be very sarcastic…..oh nudity, how dare we actually have naked skin, i shower with all my clothes on, you know, just in case i offend myself and have to sue myself for indecent exposure, oh people get a life, yes immoral behaviour is wrong, very wrong, im not disagreeing with that fact. There seems to be a strange level at which nudity is acceptable, take for example the 13 year old model in Australia, that apparently is supported by her family…erm has something gone horribly wrong, so they actually fuel this in the name of modelling (oh and a lot of money of course – theres a surprise)
