Linkebeek, 1931

Nudism was not only popular in Germany. Also in Ghent and Linkebeek there were nudist camps on isolated private grounds, well-hidden from the curious public.

The nudist camp in Linkebeek is mainly known through Willy Kessels’ photos (1898 -1974), out of which the exhibition show a number of unknown photographs. In 1931 the camp was closed down by the police and the nudists were arrested.  Precisely on that moment Kessels was making his pictures. The photograph of the door destroyed by the police is a silent witness.

Next to Kessels’ photographs from Linkebeek, we also present a reportage made by the nudists themselves. This reportage illustrates the activities in the camp very well.
