Brutal Beauty presents Isaac Julien's refreshing vision of Derek Jarman as a true Renaissance man--a painter, director, activist, diarist and gardener--whose infectiously prolific range of enterprises belies a consistent preoccupation with liberated sexual politics and the defiance of inherited mores.


This book accompanies the exhibtion at the Serpentine Gallery, curated by Isaac Julien to present one of the most important and ground breaking figures in British independent cinema during the 01970's, 80's and 90's.
