The End of Civilization, a sweet film installation by Doulas Gordon, will be playing at the Gagosian Gallery from September 8th to October 13th, 2012. It’s an incredible film about, well, the destruction of civilization. Douglas Gordon lights an antique piano on fire and you get to watch it burn to the ground. You gotta see it. It’s incredible and it’s beautiful.
