Author Wolf Jahn discusses the first monumental work by Gilbert & George, _Class War, Militant, Gateway_, a silkscreen triptych about classism. Italian artist Gilbert Prousch (or, Proesch, b. 1943) and British artist George Passmore (b. 1942) make up the collaborative art duo, Gilbert & George. They are best-known for their performance art and graphic photo-based artworks known as _The Pictures_. While they have been open about their conservative political views, their art has a decidedly anti-elitist bent. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
