I see that you guys are taking after the onion with these fake news videos. I might actually start watching more CNN now that their fake news is entertaining. Reply Shavit Sapozhnikov December 11, 2019 "If money wasn't an issue" That's exactly the artists expression in this piece of art that money is an issue..and how can we decide what art is? I don't necessarily agree with him but to do this pole is the exact opposite of what the artist intended you said it yourself previously.

Reply DILLY D December 12, 2019 I wld duck tape dog shit and put a million dollar prize tag! 😂💀 Reply bricology December 12, 2019 Cattelan is famous (at least within the art world). This "hungry artist", David Datuna, is not but he's hoping to cash-in on Cattelan's gimmick. It's pathetic, cynical, and conceptually featherweight. Reply J Butz December 12, 2019 Dumb. Reply Joshua Ward December 12, 2019 The anchor is so thick… It's kind of irritating. She asks Datuna questions and then proceeds to ignore his responses. God forbid any one try to learn something or understand anyone else.

Reply Blondie December 12, 2019 You know what's art? The fact that the banana is 120k. That is what we call the art of screwing people over! Reply Sterlin876 December 12, 2019 This banana eater is very smart. "We spoke by art through the art". Because the piece is suppose to make you feel a certain way like "Why the fuck would someone consider this to be art" or "Wouldn't it just rot in a week" and others like, "What was going through the artists head when he did this" Logical people would just be like, "Banana taped to the wall, really dumb" but this artist just recycled the most common questions once again "Why the fuck did he destroy someone else art by eating it" and "is this guy going to pay for that" as well as "What is going through this guys head". Very smart way to reintroduce the question as a performance artist because this is by far the best performance art there is. Trolling is in fact an art that people fail to acknowledge in the world. Think of it as abstract interpretive comedy. Reply Bryce Sanville December 12, 2019 MY MY that was quite a big yEET Reply FB0102 December 13, 2019 0:27 lmao stfu, its a banana duct taped to a wall.

It represents history repeating itself because you didn't learn the first time. It can be yours for $123,456!!! Act now and I'll throw in the other tablet that was used as my inspiration. Reply alpha java December 13, 2019 Moronic. I've been an artist for decades, most of the art world is fixed. Reply Georgia Richards December 13, 2019 Banana art? $120,00.00?How has this become art?

Reply Abdulahad Sajid December 13, 2019 Nope tf Reply MrRamazanLale2 December 13, 2019 This is retardation Reply glory Infinita December 13, 2019 Rich man's game. Money could have went to a charity or even to a group of starving artists. After the 1980s, "modern art" has been terrible. Now, that entire industry is just a form of bourgeois traditions. Tax the rich more please. Reply Rivaldo Realino K December 13, 2019 I will give you 25 cent on it, i am taking a risk here Reply El Chombo Custom Dioramas December 13, 2019 How come the artist who replaced this stupid banana piece of crap with the lipstick written "Epstein didn't kill himself" on the very same wall isn't being interviewed?

Why is this a story?I guess he bought a $120K banana. If not, then I should be able to walk into any museum and steal any piece of art I want and claim it is a 'performance art movement' and walk out.' Reply niraj gautam December 14, 2019 If you have that much of money, either change someones life, adopt a kid. Fund someones schooling. Or but yourself some antuques, a diamond ring, supercars.

La mayoría de los compradores que pagan cantidades desorbitadas por fotos o piezas estúpidas sean plátanos o caramelos suelen ser en el 90% de los casos gente anónima/inventada por el propio "artista" o amigos del artista compinchados para dar valor extremo a las posteriores obras que realice.
