By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast is back with episode #12 “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”

Join Eric Wall and Ando again as they discuss the basis' of the lawsuit that accuses Jeff Koons and Gagosian Gallery of running a "Ponzi-like scheme". We talk a little about how editions are works are produced, the difference between an art investor and an art collector, is Jeff Koons an artist or manufacture of art, and he is using his current collector's money as interest-free loans. Hope you enjoy the bashing of Jeff Koons in this episode.
