Naked woman strolls around museum with baby. Why?

A woman and carrying a baby caused a stir in a museum by walking around it completely naked!

The totally starkers women and the naked-as-the-day-it-was-born baby left tourists confused as she strolled through the Museum for Art and Culture in the German city of Muenster.

But this wasn't a mum who'd just forgotten to get dressed that morning – but a controversial artist who has made a name for herself by exposing her body.

Swiss artist Milo Moire, 32, was slated by critics last year when she pushed paint-filled eggs out of her vagina.

Now, she's made headlines again by walking around the gallery with no clothes on.

Milo stripped off as part of her Naked Life exhibition and was filmed holding the naked baby while looking at paintings of nudes.

Art-lover Anke Lange, 30, said: "I'm all for expression and alternatives in art, but this was just ridiculous.

"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."

But visitor Tobias Meyer, 45, said: "I must admit it was more interesting than the average art exhibition."

Milo said she wanted to show 'a naked infant safe in the arms of a naked woman' at the exhibition which features works from British artists Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David Hockney.

She added: "This direct confrontation with live nude art challenges others to reflect on familiar forms of perception.

"How close may a form of representation in art approach real life?"

Her Plop-Egg exhibition last year was slammed by critics for being 'absurd, gratuitous, trite and desperate' but her website described her work as 'volcanic explosions of colour from her vagina'.
