Jeff Koons is one of the most notorious living artists. It could be argued, however, that his commercial success has blinded us to his actual importance as an artist.

David Hopkins, Professor of Art History and Theory at the University of Glasgow, will examine a few key themes in Koons's art, such as masculinism, nostalgia, and the hypocrisy of 'taste', in order to assess how seriously we should take his work.
