"It is no easy matter to achieve a high-flying art career with productions of non-art, but Cattelan has a laugh by proving that he has done precisely that. He reveals, or even fortifies, the fact that self-parody has become the life-support system of international art infrastructures. Make people feel smart, and they will put up with anything. The mindset cannot be outflanked or overturned, because it routinely performs those operations on itself."
