Jake and Dinos Chapman
The brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman are among the most significant British artists of today and are associated with the Young British Artists group. They create art that is deliberately shocking to examine contemporary politics, religion, and morality. Extremely controversial was a series of works that appropriated original watercolours by Adolf Hitler in 2008.
"The more shitty, nasty, transgressive the art is, the more it kind of defines the centrifugal tolerance of a liberal society. So there's no crackdown on transgressive art, there's encouragement of it."
Jake & Dinos Chapman have exhibited internationally at the most prestigious art institutions, like, among others, LD50 Gallery, London (2015); Gabriel Rolt, Amsterdam (2015); Brandts Museum, Odense (2015); Jerwood Gallery, Hastings (2014); Serpentine Sackler Gallery, (2013); Pinchuk Art Center, Kiev (2013); The Hermitage, St. Petersburg (2012); Kestner Gesellschaft Hannover (2008); Tate Britain, London (2007); Tate Liverpool (2006); Kunsthaus Bregenz (2005).
