OUR COLUMNIST AVILA NOT ONLY COMMENTS ON JEFF KOONS AND THE ART MARKET BUT HE ALSO ILLUSTRATES IT WITH, IN MY OPINION, HIS BEST ONE SO FAR:
‘Why do I say that Jeff (Paella) Koons is the most degenerate artist of our times and a con artist? Because he (with the help of his assistants) is proud of stealing with his bull shit “art” the conscience of future generations of individuals… I mean that, the progress of the arts together with the spirit of a society must have a sustained and dedicated effort from the citizens and their governments, so the artist and writers, philosophers, and scholars, can freely reflect in their work the best and worst of their communities. Many of our citizens don’t have the necessary support from their governments and their own citizens to develop a cultural background (which would most likely bring to the surface the questions and answers that the common people have in their daily lives), or they do not care to have around an intellectual capability that could jeopardize the establishment. The result is the same: a soporiferous, unfruitful and ignorant society that keeps asking themselves the same old questions. How will we fight corruption? How will we save our lives? How will we create jobs? And Jeff (Paella) Koons, knowing that has a chance to improve the actual situation of the arts due to his high profile, is not helping a bit by making such a light, superficial and empty of content pieces of… shit.’
