The Swiss city of Zurich is inviting people to shed their inhibitions with a two-day city-wide festival that has been five years in the making.

The event showcases 18 international artists who are performing naked in the street, at times interacting with the public.

The Body and Freedom Festival aims to shatter societies' stigma on public nudity, with performances ranging from bare-breasted artists mixing with clothed crowds, to naked dancing and art on human bodies.

"They will reveal the vulnerability and vulnerability of the naked body in many of its manifestations, but will also show its power and charisma in the area of ​​conflict of "civilized" urbanity and "raw" nature, and will interpret public space as an appropriate platform for statement and interaction," the organisers explained.

The first Body and Freedom Festival was held in Biel in 2015.
