Product story

This book has been selected and reviewed by Michael Prodger for the RA Magazine: Issue 131 Summer 2016.

This is a vibrant account of how Hirst, Lucas, the Chapmans et al came to noisy prominence. Elizabeth Fullerton interviewed 50 artists and observers. She pieces together what happened between the 1988 Freeze show that introduced the Young British Artists and the 2004 Momart fire that saw them flicker out as a group. What was it like to be part of it? 'It felt,' says Sam Taylor-Johnson, 'like we were a rock band on the road.'
