Requiem for the Twentieth Century Twilight of the Turbulent Gods shows historical twentieth-century figures, from Che Guevara to Mao Tsedong, from Chaplin's Hitler to Vladimir Lenin, caught in moments of fatigue and distress. Among them we find Yukio Mishima-Morimura's own alter ego-who, at the suicidal cry of "Banzai! Banzai! Banzai! Long Live Art!" expressed the artist's ultimate sacrifice to art.
