Inside the death drive: excess and apocalypse in the world of the Chapman brothers
Inside the Death Drive assesses the work of brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman, one of the art world’s most controversial duos. Over the last seventeen years they have created profoundly disturbing and challenging art, enraging some viewers and reducing others to hysterics. Essays by leading figures in the field address their oeuvre from a variety of critical standpoints, examining psychoanalytic, political, semiotic, pop-cultural, philosophical, and aesthetic depths and surfaces of the Chapmans’ graphic, sculptural, and installation artifacts. In addition, the book considers other artists who have attempted to deal with modern horror. Featuring a rare, specially commissioned interview with Jake Chapman and seventy reproductions of the Chapmans’ work, this volume highlights the controversial role that transgression plays in modern art.

Abstract

Inside the Death Drive assesses the work of brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman, one of the art world’s most controversial duos. Over the last seventeen years they have created profoundly disturbing and challenging art, enraging some viewers and reducing others to hysterics. Essays by leading figures in the field address their oeuvre from a variety of critical standpoints, examining psychoanalytic, political, semiotic, pop-cultural, philosophical, and aesthetic depths and surfaces of the Chapmans’ graphic, sculptural, and installation artifacts. In addition, the book considers other artists who have attempted to deal with modern horror. Featuring a rare, specially commissioned interview with Jake Chapman and seventy reproductions of the Chapmans’ work, this volume highlights the controversial role that transgression plays in modern art.
