Jeff Koons Must Die!!! is a fabricated arcade machine and playable video game. Viewers must pay twenty five cents to play the game, simlilar to video games from the 1980's, and are able to view and virtually destroy works by Jeff Koons. If the viewer chooses to destroy any of the art then a virtual Koons sends waves of guards, curators, and lawyers out to destroy the player. The game is unwinnable and acts as a comment on the fine art studio system, museum culture, art and commerce, hierachical power structures, and the destructive tendencies of gallery goers.
