About

This group of works from Gilbert & George's 'London Series' are made up of newspaper posters, which were stolen/retrieved one by one by the artists themselves for more than 6 years, and then sorted and classified by them according to subject. This method, in the words of the artist, allows each picture to ‘decide itself’—its subject, title and size determined and denoted alphabetically and numerically by the findings of the classification process. Through this process, Gilbert & George have sought to eliminate the conscious act of ‘art-making’, asserting instead the reality (as reported by the print news media of London) that lies at the heart of their subject: the routine volatility of contemporary society. Behind each poster, however blunt or abbreviated, lies the truth and inviolable realism of a human situation, its impact and consequences.
