KOONS

Jeff Koons (1955-). American artist.
About Jeff Koons has been written and said  too much, he is an artist who does banality a work of art. In this case "Made in Heaven", with himself and Cicciolina (Ilona Staller) as protagonists. What to say? Do sex a work of art is not something new, smuggling it as interesting and innovative is another thing. It is clear there is nothing new, but the operation serves to define at least to plumb the depth of the artistic content of his works: it is quackery.  It is the same used by too many public figures such as rock stars, but not only them. Is it art? My answer is certainly negative.
