Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin (Germany), Jeff Koons, Baby and Bucket, Magazine, 1992
In 1992 Jeff Koons was temporarily living in Munich with his wife Ilona Staller (aka La Cicciolina) and their newly born child. These personal circumstances were clearly the inspiration for his picture story, a collection of images of babies, kittens and monkeys, perhaps assembled from SZ’s picture files. The spread reflects Koons’ eye for the sentimental clichés of bourgeois life. In the accompanying interview (in German) he explains his creative methodology: “The idea of direct, banal implementation appealed to me… Art is communication.. I want to be quick and fresh.”
