In Cultured Jaber cleverly addresses the ultimate question: what is the cultural value of art today and who sets it up?

The tragedy and the genius stroke for Cattelan being how he has seen himself and his piece swallowed by the Instagram monster and regarded by the instant value making of virtual technologies.
