Oh Britney, how do you manage to maintain relevance throughout our entire lives?

Since so many social media sites like to block the following images I encourage you to find them yourself: Origin of the World by Gustave Courbet and Olympia by Édouard Manet.

Here’s how they would probably like us to show the artwork….

Anywho, performance artist Deborah de Robertis was in the news about a year ago for walking into the Musée d'Orsay  and flashing her hooha to the crowd. Don’t believe us? Here it is in gif form (made SFW):

At the end of her *ahem* performance, the crowd applauded. How very French.

And homegirl isn’t going to let a little thing like a public nudity charge get her down or stop her from doing it again as evidenced by her getting arrested again for stripping down to nothing but a go-pro strapped to her head in front of Manet’s Olympia.

Museum staff asked her to get dressed and called the cops when she refused. She says, “The museum is perfectly happy to use nudity when it comes to encouraging people to come to the exhibition, and there are even pornographic films being shown in the museum, but when it comes to a contemporary artistic performance like mine, they don’t recognise it as art, and they censor it,” which is a common topic among female artists and critics.

As of this moment nobody has posted a video of her performance, though she obviously has footage of the crowd looking at her, but if we find any we’ll edit this post accordingly.
