schizophrenogenesis-bookBack in October 2014, English artist Damien Hirst opened ‘Schizophrenogenesis‘- a pill-centric exhibition that looked at humanity’s relationship with the pharmaceutical industry. Two years later, Hirst has now re-imagined the gallery into a retrospective hardcover book which highlights the exhibition. Dubbed Schizophrenogenesis, the book features 64 pages along with ten gatefolds as it highlights each and every work from the series. As Hirst himself explained, ‘Pills are a brilliant little form, better than any minimalist art. They’re all designed to make you buy them… they come out of flowers, plants, things from the ground, and they make you feel good, you know, to just have a pill, to feel beauty.’ You can pick up a copy of Schizophrenogenesis via Other Criteria now for approximately $56 USD.  schizophrenogenesis-book5 schizophrenogenesis-book4 schizophrenogenesis-book3 schizophrenogenesis-book2 schizophrenogenesis-book1
