Frauke Spangenberg


Frauke Spangenberg: I am a Photo-Artist, naked bodywork Shamanix, and Ritualist. I am curious about creating conditions and visually arousing settings in which immersive, erotic, and spiritual experiences can unfold. 

Photography thereby intensifies the experience for the one who dives in, as self-awareness is hightened while being consciously-witnessed. Photography in its nature claims to “prove” the existence of reality: it claims “It was like this”. Was it? We may reflect after our research-shop on how we experienced our immersion, expression of immersion and the visual reference of it.

Recently, I co-founded INTAEGER SALON FOR SENSUALITIES (Salon für Sinnlichkeiten & natürliche Ästhetik) in Leipzig – a space for Musing & Massage, inspired sexuality & transcendental experiences.


Salon für Sinnlichkeiten Leipzig:



The workshop is a guided crossover research of photography and Butoh/somatic bodywork with a focus on healing, combined with dark light setting, a seemingly endless string of beads and probably Shibari – an individual and collective body exploration. The pearl is read as a symbol for the transformed shadow. The hypothesis is that we all have this “primal wound” – this core wound that may never fully heal. And as soon as we come into contact with this most vulnerable aspect of ourselves, it is at the same time our treasure, which we can embody and give to the world. Visiting this innermost cave promises to also align us with our unique magic as healers.  How can it be pleasurable to touch these inner places that we normally avoid? How can beauty (aesthetics) be “helpful” and influence how we (re)interpret the process afterwards?
