That is insane - American artists like O'Keefe, Klee, Pollack, etc. don't even command prices like that. This reeks of a money laundering operation.

What really throws me is Mnuchin being involved. But art is art, regardless of who or what created it. I love art, but the industry is filled with freaks and creeps.

Nice find.

No kidding? I had to search this Koons guy and his work is nothing special. It looks like the same mediocre pop art you see in marketing campaigns. A team of graphic artists could easily churn stuff like this out.

The Art in Embassies program is without doubt a massive money/human laundering op. I can't see any other reason.

[–] Cold_Guinea_Pig 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Isn't this also part of the plan? To make shitty 'art' seem more important than it actually is? It's kind of telling people to stop thinking for themselves. I mean I have been to art galleries and have laughed my head off and said so. The looks you get when you point out that the 'emperor is naked' are priceless. They are all falling for this. They don't see when they are shafted and pretend to be knowledgeable, when in fact they are sheep.

This isn't art, it's to influence people to be told what to like and what not. Anyone with a brain cell can see that most of modern art is a load of crock. And yes I do understand art and that some has a message, but when you see some wood laid out on the floor and a stone plonked in the middle, and people go 'hmm yeah, yeah, fascinating..'I lose my rag.

That's because you're stupid. I pointed out long ago that his sister Valerie is ON THE BOARD of the Child Mind Institute.

And the Jewish publishing family who sold this Koons piece to this Jew Mnuchin is responsible for Teen Vogue's child-tranny, "Guide to Anal Sex" content (by Jewish writers).

You're something of a Jew-lover, if I recall?

[–] Blacksmith21 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Do me a favor, dickhead. Point where Mnuchin's sister is on the BOD: https://childmind.org/about-us/board-of-directors/

She co-chaired an event.

Caught this on the news tonight. I remember reading on this board awhile ago about Koons and possible money laundering through artwork.

When I heard the amount, the name Koons and that it was a damn rabbit, I knew you guys would be on top of it!

I am also scratching my head over the Mnuchin connection. Then I read this article and this part stood out. The sculpture was projected to sell for $70 million but exceeded expectations when Robert Mnuchin outbid several Asian investors.

Could the Asian investors be from China? Right now they are probably freaking out about what a Trump reelection could do to their economy. Could they have been trying to launder money into our country to financially help the cause of outing Trump? I wonder if Koons will ever get that 91 million or just a big middle finger when it comes time to pay up? Was Robert Mnuchin prepared to outbid them whatever the cost in order stop the transaction? Who knows but something is up, this is really weird.

Then I read this article and this part stood out. The sculpture was projected to sell for $70 million but exceeded expectations when Robert Mnuchin outbid several Asian investors.

The selling price was 80 million, the commissions and fees bring it up 91 million. The auction house had estimated it at 50-70 million, so it exceeded expectations, but not hugely. That article makes it look like Mnunchin came it at the last minute. That's incorrect. There was about 4 bidders going through most of the bidding which started at 40 million.

Could the Asian investors be from China?

They certainly could be, but Asia is a pretty huge place with a lot of serious players in the art world, Japan, China, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates come to mind. India has wealth too, but not sure if they have any serious collectors in this market.

Right now they are probably freaking out about what a Trump reelection could do to their economy. Could they have been trying to launder money into our country to financially help the cause of outing Trump?

No. The money laundering aspect of this makes absolutely no sense. They spent 91 million bucks on this. There's only 4 people in the world willing at the moment to spend more than $60 million on this, you will need to hold on to this for a long time to get back what you paid.

I wonder if Koons will ever get that 91 million

Wonder no longer. Koons gets exactly $0 of this money. Why? He didn't own the piece up for sale. He created back in the 80's and sold it. The guy who eventually bought it died and now his estate put it up for auction, after the auction houses take their cut, his estate will get $80 million dollars and his heirs will get some chunk of that once it all works out. Koons, as a living artist, gets to charge a lot of money for new works, but he made nothing from this sale.

Was Robert Mnuchin prepared to outbid them whatever the cost in order stop the transaction?

How does this make sense? If the Chinese were going to pay $60 million and Mnuchin paid $70 million, what exactly was gained? The Chinese still have $60 million bucks and the guy who owns the sculpture just got $10 million more.

Who knows but something is up, this is really weird.

It's not really weird. There's a strong market for Jeff Koons work and post war American art has been selling really strongly.

Who money launders whose money... Or is this up front payment for children traffciked in the art for embassy program... R the podestas behind this transaction...the artisit is a front ..the art is definitely not worth 90 million..maybe good to wipe ones ass...but definitely not 90 million amount of work.. Trump.hs stopped child trafficking across the mexican border... So the supply shortgage has pushed the price up...and so the art work

[–] Blacksmith21 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

This is all a game for the Pedo Elite. Like buying and selling wine, cars, spirits, etc. When one is worth 2B, 90M is a drop in the bucket. Just like buying/selling/trading/disposing of humans.

Yeah. But's a sculpture of a rabbit, usually viewed at eye level on a pedestal. Explain how your mind went there.

Just thought I'd throw this video from the Outer Light into the mix: 5 Things about the sale of Jeff Koons “Rabbit”

Something I noticed about the numbers. At about the 8 min. mark he shows the Wikipedia entry for Robert Mnuchin, who bought the 'art work' for some mysterious client. The price he paid for it was rounded to $91.1 M - That's 9/11. : https://imgur.com/a/xzCe9VK

A little later on he brings up the bio for Steven Mnuchin, who is the 77th US Sec. of the Treasury https://imgur.com/a/6uKEFo6 So, the double 7 has significant meanings for freemasons (See: Christine Lagarde's speech 2014 IMF speech) as well as being a significant date in the UK : 7 July 2005 London bombings

The 7 July 2005 London bombings, often referred to as 7/7, were a series of coordinated terrorist suicide attacks in London, England that targeted commuters travelling on the city's public transport system during the morning rush hour.

..In an interview with the Portuguese newspaper Público a month after the 2004 Madrid train bombings, Syrian-born cleric Omar Bakri Muhammad warned that "a very well-organised" London-based group which he called "al-Qaeda Europe" was "on the verge of launching a big operation." In December 2004, Bakri vowed that, if Western governments did not change their policies, Muslims would give them "a 9/11, day after day after day."

In the video Ed notes the coincidence that Steven is at this very point in time in negotiations with China https://imgur.com/a/4h2Gcam

The 91.1M is interesting on it's own. Why the decimal point - the extra 100k? Seems to me if one is buying a piece of art for that amount, that extra 100k is irrelevant, so why add it on to the price tag? "$91M is a touch too low, how about $91.1M and it's a deal?"

[–] ScientiaPotentia 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago  (edited ago)

No human can find this 'art' beautiful. It has to have some other meaning or purpose. I'm not sure whether they are just money laundering, it's a symbol of power and control that their garbage is worth more than actual art, this is a payment for some crime or there is some esoteric/pedo meaning but there is no possible way that anyone thinks the art itself has any value.

I described one way long ago, in a post showing its a market dominated by Jewish hedge fund owners. How could it NOT be a scam.

First they inflate the values by cultivating the artists through gallerists like Gagosian and Saatchi and complicit auction houses like Christie's and Sotheby's, reaching 9-figure transactions often since 2009.

Then they start tax-exempt foundations or private museums, like Bill Clinton’s Jewish friend Eli Broad of L.A., whose personal attorney was Hillary as far back as 1983, because established museums don't want to display their retarded “contemporary” artwork anyway and because they can save millions in taxes by donating cash or even stock to it.
