The Ten Commandments for Gilbert & George

Gilbert & George - The Ten Commandments for Gilbert & George
Unpublished text, signed original screenprint.
Limited edition of 299 copies.
Gilbert & George are Gilbert Prousch (born in South Tyrol, Italy, 1943) and George Passmore (born in England, 1942). They live and work in London. For the last 40 years the artistes have spanned the international art scene with as much insolence as elegance. Real living sculptures, they have developed a repetitive language around recurrent figures and themes: shit, piss, blood tears, nudity, sperm, alcohol, drugs. Theirs is an oeuvre that has radically overturned conventions and thinking of the period, and which refers literally to homosexuality, exclusion, social and religious violence.
