Gilbert & George have been creating art together for over half a century. Their outstanding œuvre is still of unbroken explosiveness and significance today. Simultaneously subject and object of their work, Gilbert & George form a perfect artistic unity that does not distinguish between art and life
Her work revolves around death, hope, life, fear, sex, money and religion. They are also social themes that they show in their contradictions: at once joyful and tragic, grotesque and serious, surreal and symbolic. Gilbert & George deal with what is disturbing. Their aim is not to shock, but rather to make visible what is going on in the world under their credo "art for everyone". Punks and hipsters, authorities and outsiders, headlines and advertising - everywhere Gilbert & George interfere. Their work challenges the view of the world and in this proves time and again to be forward-looking.
