HOUSTON

«But that bigness has two sides: In Houston, the city is so spread out that the police can't keep on top of it all, all the criminals and the con artists see all that space and think: unlimited opportunity»

GO WHORE!

-Andy loved it when Victor showed up at 54 in a jockstrap or at a Halston party in a Halston dress, in both cases much to Halston's embarrassment. Victor later told me that Andy actually paid him to do these things. He said Andy would slip him some cash and tell him: »Okay, whore, go out there and do something».

MAKING ART

Both Andy and Man Ray, with whom I worked in the seventies, taught me the same thing; don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide whether it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they're deciding, make even more art.

PALOMA PICASSO

It was a Paloma Picasso day. Went to breakfast at Tiffany's for her. The jewelry was pretty but I have the same stuff from the forties. It's copies from the forties. And Paloma did her little heart-shaped Elsa thing. It was expensive stuff-$27 000 for a bracelet.

POST WARHOL PREDICTION: IN THE FUTURE NAKED BABES WILL RUN AROUND FOOTBALL FIELDS DURING MATCHES IN ORDER TO BOOST TV RATINGS

CATHOLIC CHURCH AND ITALIAN CULTURE EXPLAINED

«It never ceases to amaze me: the hypocrisy of the church, especially the Catholic Church.
Most of this wealth was stolen in the name of God. The art is totally homoerotic.
The whole church seems to be controlled by a very ancient and very omnipresent gay hierarchy.
The choir in the Sistine Chapel used to consist of castrated 16 and 17 year old boys who probably had many talents other than singing. All the sculptures are about sexual beauty (asses , hands, feet, cocks) in a very male way. Everyone knows, but everyone pretends not to see. Italians are obsessed with cazzos. There are dicks drawn everywhere as graffiti.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: LES DEUX AUTRES LEÇONS DE LA TUERIE DE TOULOUSE

Être français, suisse ou japonais n'est pas qu'une seule définition civique territoriale. Le tueur était né en France. Malgré cela, il ne se sentait pas français à tel point qu'il voulait punir son pays pour l'intervention de ce dernier en Afghanistan. Deuxième leçon: la langue ne sera jamais dans le monde actuel une facteur d'identitfication plus fort que l'appartenance ethnique, raciale ou religieuse. Le tueur parlait très bien français. Il ne se sentait pas français pour autant. Sa première appartenance était religieuse d'abord puis «ethnique» au sens large de par son désir de venger les enfants arabes comme lui, mais qui eux se trouvent en Palestine.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: ISLAM & JUDAISM

Militant Islam is now for the worst, copying an important aspect of Judaism. Mixing religion with ethnicity...The Toulouse killer didn't felt French or Algerian first. He felt Muslim first. And as such, in a kind of strange and flexible «ethnic sense of belonging mixed with religion», he acted in an horryfing way to avenge his muslim brother in Afghanistan and the muslim children in Palestine.

DAVID LACHAPELLE SUR ANDY WARHOL

-Interview correspond à votre premier travail et première publication-des nus en noir et blanc. Que vous a laissé ou appris Andy Warhol?

-En me laissant le côtoyer et graviter dans son environnement, j'ai vu l'absurdité, la bizarrerie et la cruauté du monde. Les vernissages d'Andy Warhol étaient bourrés de monde mais les critiques le descendaient. À New York les gens étaient grossiers avec lui, ils le jugeaient lui et son oeuvre vulgaires, alors qu'en fait, il était tout le contraire, généreux, présent et accessible...C'est un héros de l'art! Aujourd'hui il est reconnu comme un des artistes les plus influents du vingtiéme siécle mais ce n'était pas le cas de son vivant. J'ai réalisé les derniers portraits de lui en 1987. J'ai été le témoin des nombreuses humiliations qui lui ont été infligées et j'en garde le souvenir amer»

BASQUIAT

«He achieved his first recognition in 1981 at a New York/New Wave group show at the Long Island City gallery PS 1. Both Warhol's old friend Henry Geldzahler and his Swiss art dealer, Bruno Bischofberger attented the show and were impressed with Basquiat work. Back in 1979, during lunch one saturday with Geldzahler in a SoHo restaurant , Andy had met Jean-Michel and bought a one-dollar postcard reproduction of ne of his paintings from him, but even after Basquiat's career began to take off in the years that followed, Warhol remained aloof of Basquiat's efforts to gain entry to the Factory

Au vingt et unième siècle l'anglais n'est pas la langue de l'impérialisme américain. Elle est celle de l'impérialisme chinois.

THE DEMOCRAT

He was a great democratic influence. Once we were walking down the strret when a black limousine pulled up and a dark window rolled down and there was Diana Ross, screaming out «Andy, Andy, come say hello». Andy didn't hide in a stretch limo: he was out there for everyone, whether it was Diana Ross or a tourist from Ohio. Andy travelled by taxi; he was the star in the streets.

STEVE RUBELL AND STUDIO 54

After I introduced Steve to Andy-who waited until the 54 bandwagon got rolling before he jumped on-a new element
of friction entered our relationship mainly because Andy repeated everything Steve said about me at four in the morning , and everything I said about Steve at four in the morning , and threw in some things neither of us said about each other just for the hell of it. It worked: Steve was soon closer to Andy than to me.
