Hello.

We haven't gone anywhere.


We're just in the middle of our busiest time of year, and will be returning to our regular programming shortly.

We still have a lot of revolution to cover.

In the meantime, revolutionaries, Jeff Koons Must Die.

The game is set in a large museum during a Jeff Koons retrospective. The viewer is given a rocket launcher and the choice to destroy any of the work displayed in the gallery. If nothing is destroyed the player is allowed to look around for a couple of minutes and then the game ends. However, if one or more pieces are destroyed, an animated model of Jeff Koons walks out and chastises the viewer for annihilating his art. He then sends guards to kill the player. If the player survives this round then he or she is afforded the ability to enter a room where waves of curators, lawyers, assistants, and guards spawn until the player is dead. In the end, the game is unwinnable, and acts as a comment on the fine art studio system, museum culture, art and commerce, hierarchical power structures, and the destructive tendencies of gallery goers, to name a few.

    Hi Monica,
    Thank you so much for that link. I'm so impressed that you got the hidden message about 'free puzzle games' out of my deliberately misleading post about Jeff Koonz and digital media. Most people think this is a blog about art education, but you obviously see though the veil! Well done.
