POST WARHOL PREDICTION: IN THE FUTURE DAMIEN HIRST WILL PAY TRIBUTE TO MAGRITTE WITH A PAINTING CALLED «CECI N'EST PAS UN TABLEAU DE 100 MILLIONS»

«I LIKE TO WORK WHEN I'M NOT WORKING»

At every stage of his career as filmmaker, pop painter, printmaker, publisher, writer and portraitist, he was an indefatigable worker, doing what needed to be done-from distributing copies of Interview magazine to procuring portrait commissions. He worked his staff as hard. Andy Warhol Enterprises was a group effort. Pat Hackett and Bob Colacello wrote The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (and received royalties). Warhol was encouraging, the zealous mother, continually urging his staff to go out and bring home the bacon. Having the power of an aesthtic, work became the foundation of his art».

MONDE GAY

Warhol disait ne pas croire que les homosexuels soient plus créatifs que les hétéros. Karl Lagerfeld affirme être pour que les enfants puissent être élevés par deux femmes, mais pas par deux hommes. Pourquoi les points de vue anti recitude politique comme ceux -là sont -ils devenus aussi rares lorsqu'il s'agit de la communauté gay?

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

«I get my news on the Internet or whatever, just hard facts. Almost every publication has
sensationalist jounalism in it. I don't want to be involved in evil tongue or gossip. Because I think it's brought down society in many ways-it's like a cancer. So that leaves more time for reading books. Doesn't it?»

THE WARHOL PARADOX

«With his portraits paintings and films, Warhol almost single-handedly revived one of the most ancient practices in painting as well as returned the focus of art to the human being. It's almost ironic, since Andy Warhol was widely characterized as cold and inhuman, but clearly he was fascinated by personality.»

WARHOLIAN QUOTE OF THE DAY

«I have nothing to say»

-Anish Kapoor

MADONNA

For all her success, by mid-1994 she was undoubtedly a damsel in distress. «Very few people came to my rescue. It was an incredibly eye-opening experience» she said of the period. So given that Madonna's life is an almost classic exemple of contemporary fairy tale, it would not be complete without a couple of knights riding to her rescue. Since, however, this is also a post-modern fairy tale, in which poses are struck and principles deemed passé, it is suitably ironic that the saviors of this icon of agressively sexy strong, modern womanhood should be a pair of old-fashionned gentlemen, in the unlikely shape of a cricket-loving English knight and an elderly american writer. Like a latter day Don Quixote, the rotund, heavy-jowled figure of Norman Mailer was first into battle, gallantly wielding his literary sword in her defense in a piece in Esquire magazine in August 1994. It was a timely reminder to the nation's intellectual and cultural elite that Madonna belonged to the tradition of Andy Warhol and artist who had examined the void while attempting to push back boundaries and challenge orthodoxies, particularly regarding the eternal themes of sex and love. «We have among us our greatest living female artist» Mailer prononced portentously.

NEW YORK BACK THEN

«Just as CBGBs and Max's had spawned stars of the seventies and early eighties like Blondie, Talking Heads and Television
, now the now places to be seen at were Dancetaria, The Roxy and the Mudd Club. The british singer Sade worked behind the bar of the Dancetaria, while the graffiti artist Keith Haring, whose paintings would sell in the future for hundreds of thousands of dollars, was a coatcheck boy there, sleeping on subway trains by day and working in the club at night. On any one night the place would be filled with emerging artists and musicians; the Bastie Boys, LL Cool, Grandmaster Flash, and makeup artist Debie Mazar could be found dancing, drinking, and trying to get noticed. Congregating over at the Mudd Club were black graffiti artists like Michael Stewart, Lenny MgGurr )aka Futura 2000) Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose tag or signature «SAMO» shorthand for same old bullshit, would one day see his art worth millions, and rap artist Fred Brathwaite (aka Fab Five Freddy)

«I'M A GOOD CATHOLIC»

«Andy went to church every Sunday. A lot of his friends were Catholic. He may have related better to us Catholics because we all have the same background: mass, priests, nuns, Catholic school, a sense of guilt. His religion was a very private part of his life. In church he was Andrew Warhola and not the cool pop star Andy Warhol. I think it took a lot of pressure off him. It restored to him a perspective of the world that he had grown up with. In church he was the anonymous Catholic».

WARHOL & MADONNA'S MARRIAGE

The Hollywood crowd which included Cher, Martin Sheen, Diane Keaton and Carrie Fisher, kept well away from Madonna's New York friends, among them Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Debi Mazar and Steve Rubell. «A lot of shade was being thrown» recalls Erika Belle. Matters were not helped when the nightclub-owner Steve Rubell vomited into the swimming pool, or when the maid of honor burst into the powder room and declared to everyone within earshot, «This should be my wedding day, not hers» Utterly careless of what she was saying, Paula Ciccone went on to inform embarassed guests «I should be the famous one. This should be my career. All this attention should have been mine» Andy Warhol was heard to remark« I can't believe this» shaking his head in wonder at being present at such a bizzarre event.

BOY GEORGE

We went to Odeon and had two tables and there were twelve of us. Boy George had that boy Marilyn with him. Jean Michel was nodding out. There was a little kid with Keith who didn't say anything, and Keith didn't say much, and I didn't say anything, so Boy George had to do all the talking and he's really intelligent, really a smart kid, and he does talk a lot.

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

-No retirement in sight?

-Of course not! Dietrich never retired

-She just fell off the stage one too many times

-But she went on for as long as she wanted to. Why should there be a time limit on working or giving of yourself? Or on love and sex and looking attractive? Work isn't everything, because if it was, I wouldn't have children and I wouldn't have married. But no one set of circumstances completes you. Maybe nothing ever does. So you work on your life, and you work on your work, and you try to live every single day like it's your last. I don't always succeed, but I try»

MUHAMMAD ALI

Warhol's most entertaining assignment was Muhammad Ali who was photographed in August 1977 at Fighter's Heaven, Ali's training camp in rural Pennsylvania. Ali found it remarquable that anyone would pay $25 000 for a picture unless it was «real fancy» , then launched into a series of Alilogues, capped off with a forty -minute lecture, delivered from notecards, about rape, prostitution, gravity, meteorites, Israel, Egypt, South Africa, angel-food cake, Muslim morality, Jesus, boxing, the Koran and Elvis.....Warhol later commented he had no idea what Ali had been talking about
