The entire evening was depressing and I never understood how Koons work was educating the public. Vogel asked hard hitting questions like, “and what was that made of…” before advancing the slide presentation.
The best part of the “discussion” came during the Q&A when a guy asked: “Regarding prices, is there some level of absurdity that’s going on with your staff of eighty and your ready made housed in a private collection like a treasury note?” Art as treasury note. Damn, this guy was good. In his quick query he touched on a more interesting topic then Vogel or Koons covered in the hour.
