This concept is born from the necessity of restoring and give life to this same supports, in their genesis conceived to several purposes - for instance, political publicity and propaganda - re-orienting/ subverting its original intention by profiting from its enormous potentialities as mass communication support.

About Gilbert & George 

Gilbert was born in 1943 in the Italian Dolomites. George was born in 1942 in Devon, England. Gilbert and George met while students at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London, in 1967 and have lived and worked together in this same city since 1968. Moving to the working-class neighbourhood of Spitalfields in London, Gilbert and George revolted against art’s elitism, declaring their work as part of “Art for All” and themselves “living sculptures.” The artists used drawing, video and photography in their works. As early as 1969, the artists were given an exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and by 1972–73 were frequently showing with prestigious galleries such as Konrad Fischer Galerie, Düsseldorf, Sonnabend Gallery, New York, and later the Anthony d’Offay Gallery, London . Their use of black-and-white photographic assemblages first surfaced in 1971 and by the late 1970s had developed into grid like photo combinations.
