Vito Acconci - Seedbed (1972)
Acconci was a poet. Then he masturbated under a ramp in a gallery where people were encouraged to walk around said ramp. He also cooed sexual fantasies at people using a microphone. People agree this is a brilliant piece because it took conceptual art to it's logical conclusion: replacing figurative masturbation with the real thing. 1972.
