"Scapegoating Pictures": Gilbert and George in Budapest

July 8, The Ludwig Museum – Museum of contemporary art – the exhibition of two artists working in tandem on 50 years of Gilbert and George. These avant-garde artists known to have painted in the performances themselves, as a so-called "living sculptures".

Gilbert and George do not separate art from their lives, and their works are very provocative and even shocking. Artists depict existence in a modern city, show the real world and its gradual development. Punchy colours, sharp outlines, they shout about the issues that are killing society. In the centre of the work of Gilbert and George almost always they do, but each viewer can become a part of their emotionally intense and extraordinary works.

The exhibition was developed specifically for the museums Ludwig, so that's already been shown in different cities – London, Cologne. It is supplemented with special visual effects, can admire, can come as a shock, but unlikely to leave anyone indifferent.

The exhibition "Scapegoating Pictures" in Budapest will continue until September 24
