German Actress on Indecent Exposure Trial after Lifting Skirt at Parking Lot

KAUFBEUREN, Germany – The trial of a German actress known for her role as a nun on a popular sitcom began on Tuesday after she was charged with committing indecent exposure at a parking lot by wearing a translucent top and lifting her skirt in front of plainclothes policemen.

Antje Mönning, who played Sister Jenny Marquard in the long-running comedy show “Um Himmels Willen” (“For Heaven’s Sake”), appeared at 1.30 pm with her attorney before the district court in the Bavarian town of Kaufbeuren, located some 620 kilometers (385 miles) to the south of Berlin, as documented by an epa-efe reporter present.

Prosecutors said Mönning, 41, had allegedly flashed her genitals at three men at a parking lot in nearby Jengen.

She was not aware that two of the men were plainclothes police officers who recorded the incident with a traffic surveillance camera built into their car and later filed a complaint against her.

Before the start of court proceedings, Mönning posted a provocative music video on Youtube titled “Nun Rap” in which she recreated the incident and whose lyrics constitute a passionate defense of women’s right to publicly strip whenever they feel like it without suffering prosecution.

Mönning stated through her lawyer, Philip Müller, that she had lifted her skirt “due to an artistic whim” and did not know she was in the presence of law enforcement officers.

“I cannot believe that it’s supposed to be a crime to show one’s body as a woman,” she added.

Mönning’s second attorney, Alexander Stevens, had earlier criticized police for recording his client without her consent.

In “Nun Rap,” Mönning sang the following message to the tune of a traditional German Christmas carol: “Show your breasts, show your ‘Mu’ (German slang for vagina), and smile at the hard-working commissioners.”
