Boys and girls, class is in session, and your teacher is Scarlett Johansson. The actress has narrated a mini-documentary that gives a crash course on Jeff Koons, put together by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles to accompany their recent gala held in honor of the legendary artist.

The new mini-doc, directed by Oscar Boyson, sees Johansson teaching everything you need to know about Koons in lighting speed, covering everything from his childhood to his days working as a MoMa ticket clerk, and of course, the origins behind his polarizing modern art of the last four decades (the gazing balls and steel balloon animals, among others).

The mini-doc features clips from interviews with art critics and famous fans, including Pharrell Williams and Lady Gaga, who worked with Koons for the imagery of her ARTPOP album (including the sculpture on its album cover). It also covers a few random fun facts within its eight-minute time span, including his secret obsession with Led Zeppelin. Find out more and become a Koons expert by watching the doc below.
