They're the best known duo in contemporary art. Gilbert and George have an anti-elitist approach, seeking to make "art for all" with a clear focus on their East London neighbourhood.
They put themselves on display in each of their pieces, keen to provoke and mock the establishment. Their new exhibition at the Ropac gallery in Pantin, just outside Paris, shows how their art is changing and taking a political turn. Gilbert and George tell Clovis Casali why they feel religion is exacerbating tensions around the world.
