"In place of clothes, the woman had words like 'bra' and 'shirt' scrawled on her uber-toned body in black marker."

"Some commuters barely batted an eye when the naked stunner climbed aboard a commuter train."

Thanks. Now this is proper performance art.

Jay said...

If only a good young Republican male was on that train to let her know that; "I think riding the train nude is hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and you're gonna be a good Republican bitch."

Amartel said...

It's Girls Gone Wild day at Althouse.

Scott M said...

lol @ Jay

Larry J said...

Since this happened in Germany, why were the words in English?

As far as performance art goes, this was far better than most.

edutcher said...

Why is it the women who get naked in these things don't have all that much to show off?

Kevin said...

1. For once the girl was worth looking at. Hooray!

2. Riding a train naked is gross, because of the cooties that come off of you, and the cooties that come onto you. I guess there isn't a picture of her sitting down, so let's just hope she didn't.

3. Apart from her relative hotness and the dubious sanitation issues of sitting down naked on a train, this is really boring "art." Is there anyone with any actual creativity left?

Peter said...

"Radical nudity becomes the defense shield against the stereotypes and makes the artist invisible," he wrote on his website.

May I assume that means "Anything for free publicity"?

(Or should that be "werbung uber alle"?)

CJinPA said...

"I'm an artist without artistic talent. What does the handbook say?....Ah, nudity."

Nomennovum said...

...this is really boring "art."

Huh? Wha??? But ...

If you can't gaze at her body longer than at Mona Lisa's face ... dude, you're gay!

Rocketeer said...

I, for one, would certainly strain not to bat an eye at that. Might miss something.

Tim said...

Well, she's fallen short of the Khardashian standard; make of that what you will.

Tom Gallagher said...

So this is how Janet Napolitano earned her way thru college.

john said...

This points out one of the drawbacks of working in a home office.

ndspinelli said...

What did she write on her poontang? She's quite attractive so this is art IMO.

Chef Mojo said...

That's how you get people to ride public transport!

ndspinelli said...

Tom, Janet would only do it w/ a strap-on.

Methadras said...

I approve of this art. FOR JUSTICE!!!

ndspinelli said...

Chief Mojo, The problem is many men would want to ride her! As would Janet Napolitano and Rosie O'Donnell.

john said...

There is a youtube video of models strutting completely naked down a fashion show runway.

I play it sometimes, tho I've always wondered how the designer was going to make any money that season.

tim maguire said...

The censorship would be funny if it weren't so insulting to the reader's intelligence. "It says she's naked, but she's not. She's wearing some wierd out of focus bathing suit."

Yes, we're all fooled. And protected, comfortable in our warm cocoon of concern. Thank you Daily News!

Chip Ahoy said...

Ace.

Nomennovum said...

As Titus might say, "tits." They're maginificent.

When seen unpixilated. Google it ... I mean, "them." It's worth upsetting the HR nannies for. Blame Althouse if they squawk.

ndspinelli said...

This woman also proves black heels set off any outfit! You could tell the foot fetish people, they only looked @ those black heels.

lemondog said...

'Artist' has run out of originality and fresh ideas.

And why not a man and a woman commuting? He wearing homburg with umbrella and newpaper in hand.

EDH said...

She appears shaved.

Did she write "Pubes" there?

Coketown said...

Why English?

I'm kidding. I know why. I just like drawing attention to it. Like pointing out all the McDonald's restaurants in Paris.

Astro said...

Really, is that all it takes?

I'm going to use a magic marker to write Twelve Inches on my penis.

Umm, no. I'll have to write 12" instead.

Nomennovum said...

Did she write "Pubes" there?

Even the foreign press pixilated the pubes. So, there's no telling, but odds are she's a baldie.

Mitchell the Bat said...

It's been done before, sort of. Link.

traditionalguy said...

Finally we are at the stage of rebellion against clothing. The tyranny of a healthy life is so oppressive.

There is little sexual excitement in a nudist world. What's left to capture?

We are re-distributing mental health. If you have any, turn it in so the sexual novices can not feel thet are the left out ones.

lemondog said...

"Brazilian"

Steven said...

"X-rated," NY Post? I thought you needed more than nudity for an X rating (or NC-17 these days) -- if not sexual contact, at least some lasciviousness along with the nudity. Am I mistaken? Or just taking their description too literally?

bagoh20 said...

But why was she wearing heals, the most unnecessary, patriarchal, sexualizing, and woman debilitating of all clothing?

Smilin' Jack said...

Why is this tagged "bad art"? It's a lot better than e.g. Christo's crap. True, it would be much better without the marker, but these days you have to take what you can get, "art"-wise.

Nomennovum said...

The most interesting thing about this (other than the breasts, butt, and bush) is that this German fraulein wrote in English on her "canvas." Gosh, it really makes me swell ... with pride.

Chef Mojo said...

Slip on the mons.

Smoooooth...

Thank you, Lemondog...

David said...

I do like the third picture, with the lady in the Muslim head scarf in the foreground.

veni vidi vici said...

Artist wanted to "shake up the ordinary."

...and yet "straphangers barely batted an eye".

More idiocy as "art". Nowadays, for the most part, "art is a fart in the dark."

Chef Mojo said...

Damn, she's tight.

Wait. She's wearing pants. Why the slip?

Chef Mojo said...

Going up the stairs into the sunlight?

Sweet muscular Jesus. That's art!

furious_a said...

I'll bet the Dusseldorfer Tagliche Zeitung eschewed the pixellation (sp?). Amerikaners are so prudish.

EDH said...

campy said...

"Brazilian"

I suppose a "Hitler Mustache" was out of he question.

Checking out Milo's other work, I'm figuring this is his high-water mark in no uncertain terms.

RE: edutcher:

I know what you're saying, but this one seems to have been the exception.

That said, why would anyone think that public nudity would surprise the Germans of all people? Aren't Germans famous for their nudist beaches?

Lucius said...

Shrugging off the incurious glances of strangers, our heroine departs on her way, a radiant emblem of modern woman at large in her world.

Self-defined but short on time, even her nudity cannot be casual, for she embodies the contrarieties of post-technocratic humanity, a cyborg of carnality and self-consciousness.

The numinous bath of Apollonian radiance which envelops and obscures her as she ascends the stairs serves to remind us that transcendence lines the fabric of time like gaudy cupcake foil, always disposed of but ever shining.

Jeff Teal said...

bad art tag?Given Kitty Pryde,Danny Brown,KAT and the VM maybe it was just a statement about the 21st century womans sexual aggressiveness.

bpm4532 said...

Why not MY train?

Jeff Teal said...

Art is in the eye of the beholder.Just last night a woman checked into a hotel wearing motorcycle chaps and a black fishnet camisole.Should I be offended or celebrate her confident self -expression?What about Kate Upton?Or anyones from Castro St to Fantasyfest?

furious_a said...

I didn't see the German for "Tampon", so Gottseidank for small favors.

She's hot and all, but I'm more of a Karen Finley dipped-in-chocolate guy.

cubanbob said...

Nice bod, OK face but its da chooz that make it piece of hot-performance art.

furious_a said...

Some Magritte-ish N'est pas un tetine or N'est pas un derriere would have been well-played.

Nomennovum said...

Naseer, "Cars with girls"? Like a German model??? Das Deutschemodellfrauliner????

ricpic said...

Instant arrest if a guy had tried this stunt no matter what he called it.

Matt said...

@ Astro - LOL

Best response to this woman: glance at her chest and then look her in the eye and say, "Your bra is crooked." Then, completely ignore her.

Larry J said...

When the Ukrainian girls from FEMEN do their naked protests of the Vatican in Italy, most of their signs are in English, too. I wonder why? /sarc

HA said...

It must be sweeps week at Althouse.

Lucien said...

The problem was that the train operator kept backing the train out of, and then into, the same tunnel, again and again.

Kevin said...

Ugh, the video makes it clear that she does sit down, where a million people have sat and a million more will sit. Man, that is brave/stupid/inconsiderate all at the same time.

The Godfather said...

She must have been cold.

Were there no gentlemen around to offer their lap as a more sanitary option?

furious_a said...

Did she write "Pubes" there?

"Brazilian"


No, "YOU WISH".

furious_a said...

She paid her fare and stamped her ticket like a good citizen.

Tibore said...

At first I thought "I never get this sort of luck on MY morning commute". But then I figured that, given the "aesthetic quality" of the folks who live around here, maybe that's a blessing. :-S

The Roller said...

Made you look...

Assuming she was paid for her role in this performance art job, what do you think she did first thing she arrived at her regular place of employment?... She put on some clothes.

Double dipping at it's finest!

ed said...

Nice tits. I approve of this service/message/art/pr0n and believe it deserves massive government funding. What the hell. Solyndra cost American taxpayers $500+ million and we didn't get a thing for it. This at least we'd be entertained.

The guys at any rate.

ed said...

My favorite art form consists of stacking bricks. Yes that is right. There is a form of modern art that consists of stacking bricks. As in actual real bricks. On top of one another. In patterns. And that is "art".

You can actually get paid to do this.

Personally though that isn't avant garde enough for me. I'm doing my brick stacking using legos.

ed said...

Actually what I'm curious about is the method of finding the model to do this. How do you frame the request? How do you interview the model?

It seems a bit obscene.

The Roller said...

Speaking of career enhancements, If she had penned the words "Putin" on her private parts, could she have renamed herself, Pussy Buy It?

creeley23 said...

My favorite public space surprise was this performace of "Do Re Mi" at the Antwerp train station.

27,000,000 hits on YouTube.

Joe said...

How is that an "X-rated stunt"? They are demeaning the term.

The created called it "Radical nudity". Uh, how about, regular nudity. Jesus, these people have no imagination.

A Radical Nude X-Rated stunt would be to have a group of a dozen very ugly nude people fucking on the train.

Joe said...

BTW, I went to the artist's site. For an artist he's tremendously inept with a camera.

At least he found a somewhat attractive woman, even if his writing is pretty sloppy and indistinguishable from tattoos.

It was boring, which is probably the biggest insult of all.

Clyde said...

@ Larry J

My question exactly. I noted the same thing when there were nude protests across Europe for some Muslim woman's rights after she was imprisoned for showing nudity online.

I guess it's because English is the language that Europeans mostly have in common. If a Swede and a Spaniard have a conversation, it's most likely to be in English.

Rusty said...

Very few women can pull that look off successfully.
She did a great job.

Clyde said...

It says "SLIP" over both her pubic area and buttocks.

Clyde said...

Having watched the video, I was a bit surprised at the lack of reaction among the proles around her. If I were to see an attractive, shapely nude woman walking past me on the street or on the subway, my head would no doubt turn as I watched her pass.

The fact that everyone else was dressed in winter coats tells me that clothing is not just to cover one's nudity, but also to help control one's climate or temperature. Such performance art might be more appropriate in the summer, when the transgressiveness would be against nudity taboos rather than dressing for the weather.

Clyde said...

It's funny how the media in various nations dealt with the pictures: In the U.S., all of her naughty bits are pixelated. In the U.K. (The Sun), only her lower parts were pixelated. In Italy (Il Mondo, Oggi Treviso), the pictures weren't pixelated at all. This is how I know that it said "SLIP" over her pubic area and buttocks; that word was completely pixelated in the other country's pictures. Thank goodness for Safe Search Off!

ken in sc said...

Sehr gut, I would give her two thumbs up and a Putin eyeballing.

Ambrose said...

Yeah, some guy convinced her to do this in order to see her naked.
