In the aftermath of the 2015 terrorist attacks, Jeff Koons donated a work, 'Bouquet of Tulips' to the city of Paris. But now a number of leading French cultural and political figures have said; 'non merci'. The signatories to an open letter in Liberation point out that generous Jeff only donated 'the idea' of the piece, and that the French state and donors will have to pay €3.5m to actually make and install the thing. More here from Naomi Rea on Artnet.
