Mia Fineman. (16 January 2008). Naked ambition: Why doesn’t Spencer Tunick get any respect? Slate Magazine (Art section). (Mention).

"Though he varies the settings, the poses, and the number of participants, Tunick essentially repeats the same basic formula over and over again: Find a place, arrange some naked bodies in it, and take some pictures...

Whereas Beecroft cultivates an air of glamour, elitism, and fashionable hauteur, Tunick’s approach is shaggy, populist, and a little bit hokey—more like a hippie be-in than a designer fashion shoot...

The problem with Tunick as an artist—and the main reason, I think, most critics have ignored him—is that he doesn’t seem to have anything to say. His installations are spectacular and attention-grabbing, but as for what it all means … well, to put it bluntly, I don’t think it extends too far beyond, "Wow. That’s a lot of naked people..."

Das "Miniatur Wunderland" ist eine riesige Modelleisenbahn-Anlage und stellt Länder und Regionen im Kleinformat nach - gespickt mit vielen Details und liebevoll gestaltet. Ursprünglich handelte es sich bei der neuen Attraktion um eine Greenpeace-Aktion, die auf die Verletzlichkeit des schwindenden Aletschgletschers (der flächenmäßig größte und längste Gletscher der Alpen) hinweisen sollte. Der US-Installationskünstler Spencer Tunick und Greenpeace organisierten im August 2007 eine „lebende Skulptur“: Hunderte nackte Menschen posierten auf dem Gletscher. Dieses spektakuläre Zeugnis gegen die Klimaerwärmung hat jetzt auch Eingang in die Miniaturwelt gefunden.’
