Is it art? And on a related note, who cares?

Swiss performance artist Milo Moire is a woman of many talents. She can paint. She can model. She can expel ink-filled Easter eggs from her vagina and distribute the paint symmetrically onto a canvas, as she demonstrated with her last major project, the aptly titled (and NSFW) Plop Egg painting.

Moire is also an expert multitasker, judging by her ability to walk around naked in a German museum while simultaneously holding a baby.

Moire displayed her special gift as part of her Naked Life exhibition at the LWL Museum for Art and Culture in Munster, Germany, where she carried a naked baby while posing next to classic works of art. She described the exhibition on her website as a ““direct confrontation with live nude art [that] challenges others to reflect on familiar forms of perception.”

While you’d think most German high-school students on a boring museum field trip would have been thrilled to see Moire’s performance, many museum attendees were not pleased.

“I’m all for expression and alternatives in art, but this was just ridiculous,” one museum visitor told the Daily Mail. “From what I gather, she thinks that getting her clothes off, looking at paintings of nude people and holding a naked baby makes her become part of the art.”
