Jake and Dinos Chapman make iconoclastic sculpture, prints and installations that examine, with searing wit and energy, contemporary politics, religion and morality. The State Hermitage Museum will exhibit the hellscape 'End of Fun' which is presented alongside reinterpreted Goya etchings.
'End of Fun' features tens of thousands of remodelled, 2-inch-high figures, many in Nazi uniform and performing egregious acts of cruelty. The work combines historical, religious and mythic narratives to present an apocalyptic snapshot of the twentieth-century.
