a performance artist

a woman sits in front of the Mona Lisa in the louvre, exposing her genitals – http://tinyurl.com/ybm5n954

a naked man in the Sao Paulo Museum of Modern Art in Brazil invites folk – including a 4 yr old girl – to interact with his body – http://tinyurl.com/yctthhsb

they call it ‘performance art’ but while they’re certainly making an exhibition of themselves, not everyone would agree what they are doing is ‘art’ – if they are hauled up before a judge on a charge of indecent exposure/offending public decency etc, they better hope the judge isn’t a philistine
