Koons and Chicholina


I just visited the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. The museum itself is a wonderful exposition of modern art, where imagination, creativity, modern technology and science, and probably also lots of mathematics was put together, to create this wonderful building. This building represents a lot of what is so amazing about modern western culture, science and arts. Yet, most of the exposition in the museum itself was of Jeff Koons, who made probably a huge donation to the museum, to become the sole occupant of this wonderful museum. If I would create an art movement, probably it would be called, “Clearing the public space from Koons’s kitsch”. When I spoke about cultural decadence of Europe, I spoke exactly about people like Koons. The only positivity about him is Chicholina, who in contrary to Koons, expressed herself in an authentic and revolutionary way. Koons himself is nothing more than a self-possessed, mediocre. A product of American consumerism and advertising industry, where only lies, falsification, flattery, idealisation of wrappings with no real content are the rule, and the real things is politically not correct. Koons is part of the trend in Europe I mentioned, where the people are not asked to face the realities as they are, and demanded to help to cope with the problematic developments they are living in, but rather are asked to close their eyes in front of them.
