Amazon.co.uk [£23.23]With his brutal post-industrial music, theatrical makeup and controversial lyrics about serial killers and Satanism, shock rocker Marilyn Manson has stood as an icon for a generation of dispossessed teens. It is less well known that Manson has been painting pictures since 1999. Genealogies of Pain presents 30 of his paintings, executed over the past ten years. Manson's portraits of cartoonish characters are rendered in delicate pastel colors, but the subject matter accords with his notoriously morbid aesthetic: one figure gnaws off his own fingers, another wears a gas mask. This volume pairs Manson with filmmaker David Lynch, who has also made a living out of mining mankind's darkest carnal fears. Included here are stills from four of Lynch's early short experimental films, Six Men Getting Sick, The Grandmother, The Amputee and The Alphabet, which employ similar themes of physical and psychological trauma. An interview with Manson explores his techniques and relevant art historical traditions.

vfmk.de The publishers website also has the exhibition catalogue for sale, however their order form only seems to have the option to select the following locations when ordering: Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Pretty awesome. I think it was just listed the past few days because I've been checking the VFMK website weekly for the catalogue to be listed and it wasn't there a few days ago I'm sure, but I'm looking forward to receiving my copy. :D
I tried ordering through the publishers website but they only gave me the 3 locations listed on the billing address which didn't help when I wanted to order to the UK. :(
