From the dust jacket- "Taking its starting point and title from the Gothic novel, this book investigates the full-blown revival of a Gothic sensibility in contemporary art; in American and British fiction labeled the 'New Gothic;' in film with its long tradition of horror; and in video, music, fashion, design and underground culture. Gothic accompanies an exhibition at The Institute of Contemporary Art, including twenty-three artists who produce horror as well as amazement through often repulsive, fragmented and contorted forms.
