No current Talk conversations about this book.

For the first time Gilbert & George open up and talk at length to the public. In this extraordinarily revealing book, two of the world's most controversial contemporary artists, who have dubbed themselves 'living sculptures', explain and defend their views and actions. These freewheeling conversations are the fruit of over ten years of friendship with the critic Francois Jonquet, and are distilled from an intensive series of unprecedentedly frank interviews. Candid and uninhibited, Gilbert & George provide a highly entertaining insight into their unique lifestyle, and give a robust exposition of their views on art, life, sex, money, religion and race. Equally revealing are the many illustrations of Gilbert & George's provocative and controversial works of art. Despite their notoriety, Gilbert and George have always been reluctant to speak publicly, and have only occasionally published manifestos or given interviews, many of which were collected into a volume published in 1997. However, over the last ten years they have developed a close friendship with the Paris-based author and critic, Francois Jonquet, and have held with him a long series of interviews in which they have been wil
