Fucking Hell! Hitler as a Hippy

The Chapman brothers (Jake and Dinos) have opened a pair of exhibits inside White Cube at Mason's Yard in London. The first exhibit Fucking Hell is a collection of Boschian dioramas featuring skeletons, torture and Nazis gone wild. In the photo above, a group of living dead observe Hitler painting atop a clifside overlooking the apocalyptic carnage below.

Their second exhibit, If Hitler Had Been a Hippy How Happy Would We Be, features a group of watercolors painted by Hitler himself, which have been defaced by the brothers. They purchased the group of 13 paintings last year for a total of £115,000. By adding rainbows and other embellishments to the paintings, the brothers hope to redeem their artistic merit.
