Jake & Dinos Chapman: The Blind Leading the Blind
CZECH REPUBLIC
PRAGUE  •  Galerie Rudolfinum  •  Ongoing
 
A strong response was aroused by Jake & Dinos Chapman's changing of Goya’s graphic prints from the Disasters of War series, published in a special edition in 1937, where the heads of the victims were replaced by heads depicting clowns and puppies. The destruction, desecration and removal of someone else’s paintings, based on iconoclasm, can be understood as a reflection of the savagery of our own culture. Jake and Dinos create installations, sculptures and paintings, which through cynical and sarcastic humour highlight the current debased political, social, religious and moral situation.
