South African performance artist Steven Cohen is currently on trial in Paris for a piece of he performed last year in front of the Eiffel Tower. Performance art as a medium is known for being edgy and pushing boundaries, but French authorities think Cohen took it a little too far when, dressed in a corset, platform shoes, and feather headdress, he put a live rooster on a makeshift leash and attached it to his penis. Yes, he walked a cock with his cock. 

The question the court raises is: did he impose his cockwalking on viewers or did they watch it of their own volition? Cohen’s argument is that it doesn’t matter why viewers watched, it matters that it was “artistic expression of his identity.” He also raises the point that his art didn’t seem to bother anyone. “No one complained, not even the group of nuns who walked by,” Cohen told the court. If convicted, Cohen will have to pay a fine of 1,000 Euros. Thoughts? [CBC Radio]
