Alexander Zelenka. (23 August 2007). Commentaire:Art(naque). Terre & Nature (Switzerland).

"De nombreuses critiques se sont élevées suite au happening médiatico-artistique orchestré par Spencer Tunick et Greenpeace sur le glacier d’Aletsch. Parmi les arguments avancés, le fait que l’artiste recrute bénévolement les participants, qui ne reçoivent pour seul dédommagement de leurs déplacements qu’une photo signée par l’artiste. Une rémunération qui semble pour certains trop modeste, alors que l’artiste vend ses œuvres plusieurs dizaines de milliers de dollars à de grandes institutions culturelles, musées en tête."

"The event set loose a giddy round of punning by headline writers: ‘Spotlight on shrinkage,’ ‘Bottom line on global warming,’ ‘600 strip to expose climate change,’ ‘Swiss give global warming a crack,’ ‘Going au naturale for nature,’ ‘Naked launch,’ ‘Bare facts on global warming,’ ‘The naked truth,’ etc. A more ‘we are not amused’ tone was struck by the mayor of the nearby town of Bettmeralp, Heidi Kreuzer, who told Swiss paper Le Matin, ‘There’s no need to get undressed. I can show you very nice pictures of the glacier."

"Donc, ces photos doivent en quelque sorte être considérées comme des icônes de la nouvelle religion qui nous annonce, pauvres pécheurs que nous sommes, la fin proche du monde, à cause du climat. (Et on ne rigole pas!) Donc, si vous avez envie de faire une connerie, dites à tout le monde que c’est pour le climat. Ça passera. Même en Valais. D’antan, les tricheurs disaient: «C’est pour les pauvres. » Ça marchait aussi."

"Le lac intéresse fortement Valais Tourisme pour son potentiel touristique. «La disparition des glaciers intéresse tout le monde actuellement, commente Urs Zenhäusern, directeur de Valais Tourisme. Il n’y a qu’à voir la dernière performance de Spencer Tunick sur le glacier d’Aletsch. Avec le réchauffement de la planète, nous sommes peut-être les derniers témoins de la présence des glaciers sur Terre. Alors même si, bien sûr, personne ne se réjouit de la fonte des glaces, il y a peut-être tout de même un aspect positif à en tirer, ne serait-ce que pour sensibiliser les gens à la problématique. De plus, la formation d’un lac glaciaire avec de telles dimensions est quelque chose d’unique en Suisse. Je pense donc qu’il serait intéressant de développer cela. »"

“Vor rund sechs Wochen machte Greenpeace mit Bildern von nackten Menschenmassen Schlagzeilen. 600 Männer und Frauen zogen trotz ungemütlicher Temperaturen auf dem Aletschgletscher ihre Kleider für einen guten Zweck aus. Sie posierten nackt für den amerikanischen Fotokünstler Spencer Tunick, der zusammen mit Greenpeace auf die Probleme des Klimawandels aufmerksam machen wollte. Ungewöhnliche Ideen, die provozieren und auffallen - das ist das Prinzip des Guerilla-Marketings, benannt nach der Taktik von Widerstandskämpfern, die ihre Gegner durch unerwartete Aktionen verwirren. Wie man kreative Ideen für ungewöhnliche Marketingaktionen entwickelt, können Interessierte in Kursen und Workshops lernen.”
