Ein Leben nach dem Tod? Der Autor kehrt zurück

“To me, I was using something as though it were a letter in an alphabet. And if artists cannot use things that are already here, this means that I cannot function in an objective realm, that I must be a masturbator, that I have to deal with the self, and I can’t deal in things beyond the self, that I can’t create in the objective realms, I can’t create in the realms of association and create my vocabulary there.” – Jeff Koons

1988 konnte man die Kunstausstellung Banality von Jeff Koons besuchen, in ihr war unter anderem die Skulptur String of Puppies ausgestellt. Koons hatte sich für diese von Art Rogers Postkarte Puppies inspirieren lassen.
