"This major study on internationally renowned artists Gilbert and George provides a insight into their work and lives.

Gilbert & George : intimate conversations with François Jonquet by Gilbert Proersch( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time Gilbert & George open up and talk at length to the public. In this extraordinarily revealing book, two of the world's most controversial contemporary artists, who have dubbed themselves 'living sculptures', explain and defend their views and actions. These freewheeling conversations are the fruit of over ten years of friendship with the critic Francois Jonquet, and are distilled from an intensive series of unprecedented frank interviews. Candid and uninhibited, Gilbert & George provide insight into their unique lifestyle and working methods, and give a robust exposition of their views on art, life, sex, money, religion and race. Equally revealing are the many illustrations, which comprise a retrospective of their finest and most powerful work, including new pictures published here for the first time, and also an illuminating selection of new and old documentary photographs."--Jacket
Gilbert & George : the Singing sculpture by Carter Ratcliff( Book )

4 editions published between 1972 and 1993 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Publishers Weekly In their paintings, sculptures, photo-pieces and performances, the British duo Gilbert & George have proven themselves witty, subversive social commentators. This oversize, profusely illustrated album documents The Singing Sculpture , a performance piece in which Gilbert & George--impeccably dressed, their faces and hands splotched with metallic paint--stand on a table and impersonate automatons who repetitively croon a Depression-era music-hall song about two London tramps. The duo baffled and entranced New York City gallery-goers with this "living sculpture" in 1971 and again in 1991. Art historian Rosenblum interprets the piece as a commentary on homelessness, poverty and the mechanization of popular entertainment. Ratcliff, contributing editor of Art in America , provocatively presents Gilbert & George as didactic artists who celebrate the world and who attempt to awaken each member of their audiences to his or her true individuality. This is the first title from a new publisher, and it's a stunner. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc."--Amazon
Gilbert & George by Gilbert & George( Visual )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert Prousch met George Passmore at St Martin's School of Art in 1967. Since then they have famously lived and worked together as Gilbert & George, creating an extraordinary body of provocative artworks. They have exhibited themselves as "Living Sculptures", documented the banality of their daily lives in London's East End, and, since the late 1970s, produced vibrant, challenging photographic collages. This video profile of Gilbert & George features a characteristically deadpan performance of themselves. Sex, money, race and religion, they explain, are four themes at the heart of their art. Their interview is complemented by images of their works, including the remarkable Dirty Words Pictures made in 1977, together with important collages of the 1980s and 1990s. Asked if their work, and their personas, are ironic, Gilbert says, "We always think it's struggle enough to drag something out from inside of ourselves onto that wall without trying to be strange or odd about it." "We wanted to be absolutely painful truth," George adds. "I really believe it has to be painful." Please note that this DVD contains explicit images and adult language featured in artworks by Gilbert & George

Tim Marlow with ... Gilbert & George by Tim Marlow( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert & George are two people but one artist. Their remarkable partnership is among the most consistent and long lasting in the history of art. In this fresh and revealing film the self-proclaimed living sculptures join Tim Marlow in a walk around their "Major Exhibition" at Tate Modern and talk frankly about art and life. They discuss, among other things, why they dislike religion and how they go about photographing their own bodily fluids, why they have always worn suits and how they have felt shunned by the art establishment and media ... This film is a fascinating insight into their world and in itself an important document of their live and work
