Art that Kills: A Panoramic Portrait of Aesthetic Terrorism, 1984-2001
Never before collected in one volume. Interviews and profiles of over 40 artists, musicians, film-makers and writers whose confrontational art brought them into direct conflict with the law. With over 300 graphic, ultra-rare and revealing photos and pictures, . A diabolical era, 1984-2001 evolved a new aesthetic movement, a terrifying fringe of Underground Art where enlightenment and depravity combined. Murder, rape, torture, pedophilia, cannibalism, drugs, sedition, racism and blasphemy mixed with literature, history, politics, news, movies, TV, punk rock, philosophy and science. Here are profiles of a pantheon of dissidents and deviants, excerpts from their work, their crimes, and analyses of an elusive era. The second generation of American Underground Art. The artists, from a cross-section of American life, from successes and also-rans, all wanted to hurt others in profound ways. Some have succeeded; one presides over an aesthetic empire, one is the worlds biggest rock star, one sits on Death Row, one is a transsexual, others languish in prison. Some are dead.
