The video game that lets you destroy Jeff Koons

Jeff Koons Must Die!!! The Video Game from Hunter Jonakin on Vimeo.

Hunter Jonakin programmed and designed this brilliant, cheeky, subversive FPS (first person shooter) video game that allows the player to roam a museum filled with pop artist Jeff Koons’ installations and art pieces…and destroy them with a BFG while dodging guards. The playable game is housed in an old school arcade cabinet and requires 25 cents to play. Hunter explains: “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.”
