About

The Gallery of Lost Art was an online exhibition that told the stories of vanished artworks. Whether destroyed, stolen, discarded or erased some of the most significant artworks of the last 100 years have been lost and can no longer be seen.

In their Insult to Injury series (2003) the Chapman brothers bought and defaced Goya’s Disasters of War. In this short film Jake Chapman defends a seemingly mad act of vandalism.
