PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: CULTURAL DIFFERENCE

The French and the Americans always have a strange love-hate relationship. Normal. For one age is something «you are» for the other, something «you have». Every misunderstanding starts from there.

THE INTERNET AS WARHOLIAN IDEA


The Internet is a Warholian idea, his friends say. It's a place of unlimited possibility and instant gratification. "The concept of being able to release whatever you want to say, to say whatever you want to say however you want to say it, and have the potential to reach such a large number of people instantly" is the essence of Warhol, Bockris says. "He was always very impatient to get out what he was saying." He'd have enjoyed push-button publishing.He would also have liked how the Internet has changed the nature of fame.

DAMIEN HIRST ET LA CRITIQUE D'ART: LA LEÇON WARHOL

Aujourd'hui Damien Hirst n'est plus la coqueluche du monde de l'art qu'il fut à ses débuts. Mais l'histoire nous apprend que comme tout le reste, cela ne sera que passager. De Warhol on a dit que toute sa production après les années 1960 ne présentait guère d'intérêt. Puis on a redécouvert d'abord  la beauté de ses grands autoportraits sur fond noir. Ensuite ce fut ses portraits des années 1970, puis sa dernière période et ses collaborations avec Haring et Basquiat. Enfin aujourd'hui, c'est son immense production commerciale passée pour des magazines ou des pochettes d'albums que l'on redécouvre avec enthousiasme. Hirst suivra une courbe similaire. Les séries de papillons seront les premiers à être redécouverts pour leur valeur esthétique. Et comme Warhol ce sera ensuite sa création de pochettes d'albums de disque qui relança l'intérêt pour son oeuvre à l'avenir. L'association avec le monde de la musique ne ment jamais.

L'OBSESSION DE LA BEAUTÉ

«Il faut surtout que le résultat soit accessible, qu'il provoque une réaction, agréable ou désagréable, mais rapidement. Mes chansons sont souvent agressives, elles ne sont pas là juste pour être belles. Pour moi, la beauté est partout. L'agressivité peut être belle. En même temps, j'ai vraiment envie d'aller vers le plus grand nombre. Ce que je fais, c'est de la pop.»

WHEN TOO MUCH COLLEGE PUBLISH OR PERISH MAKES YOU DUMB

In May 1985, Andy Warhol was interviewed by the modernist art historian Benjamin H.D. Buchloh. Throughout the interview, Buchloh tries to situate Warhol’s work in relation to that of earlier avant-garde artists, to Duchamp, Man Ray, Matisse, Yves Klein, and Francis Picabia, among several others. Warhol eludes every such attempt on Buchloh’s part to create a modernist pedigree for his art. “No, well, I don’t know” Warhol would say or “No, well, I didn’t think that way.” When asked specifically about the artistic impact of meeting Duchamp in the 1960s, Warhol responds “No, I didn’t know him that well.” And, in a moment of terrifically unambiguous rejection, Warhol answers a question about the influence of Picabia on his drawings of the 1950s by telling Buchloh that “I didn’t even know who that person was” at the time.

«I THINK THE YOUTH OF TODAY ARE TERRIFIC»


Millennials have a high degree of trust in their society’s institutions. A Pew Research Center study found that Millennials are “more supportive of business than their elders. A higher percentage of Millennials than other cohorts agrees that ‘business corporations generally strike a fair balance between making profits and serving the public interest.’” This feeling is shared by 44 percent of Millennials, compared with 35 percent of Gen Xers and Boomers and 32 percent of the Greatest Generation. We don’t blindly trust these institutions; we understand their limitations and know that greed and corruption are inevitable, and thus we are not shocked by scandals and crises.
The same spirit of pragmatic idealism is responsible for the Millennials’ optimistic attitude about their economic prospects, even in the depths of a lingering recession that has hit our generation hard and diminished our prospects of finding our first jobs. A Pew study found that although Millennials’ “entry into careers and first jobs has been badly set back by the Great Recession … they are more upbeat than their elders about their own economic futures as well as about the overall state of the nation.”

«Fame might be the best aphrodisiac but I wasn't famous enough to excite anyone except the rare individual. Where I was younger and less celebrated I had more success. Youth boosts the appeal of even quite mediocre fame. In any event it's women who are more susceptible to the lure of power and money. Men like youth and beauty. Straight men might envy or compete with male sucesss but gay men seek out trophy boys».

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

There are a lot of differences between the various generations of queers, like how the older ones grew up reading Cosmo while the newer ones only bother with serious financial digests and video games. But I feel the main contrast lies in underlying attitudes towards sex. Old queens grew up with very little gay visibility in the media and a heightened sense of gayness being something taboo and even (in society's eyes) sinful and downright sick. They came of age feeling that gay was something to hide or to "get over," and often felt more attracted to anonymous, shame-based sex than to open, long-term connections.Those hoary attitudes still pop up, but mainly the younger gays have grown up with queer iconography everywhere they turn and with gay marriage seeming to become an eventual reality as society progresses. They have healthier views about sex and seem unencumbered by the urgency to hide and slink around in dark alleys. In fact, they generally want long-term relationships more than their predecessors did (though they'll gladly spice up those relationships with shameless online hookups, albeit often with their partner's permission--or even inclusion

In 1986 Haring opened his Pop Shop in New York to sell works printed on commercial objects like buttons and t-shirts. Two years later, he opened an international version in Tokyo, a space made out of two shipping containers welded together to form one large room. By the summer of 1988, the Tokyo shop closed.Haring was quoted saying, “there are just too many Haring fakes available all over Tokyo and, this time, they’re really well done.” After 20 years of business, Hering also closed the New York Pop Shop when rent became too high. New York Magazine quotes Amy Cappellazzo, then the co-head of contemporary art at Christie's, 'This is such an end of an era,' she said of the shop's folding, 'Once you can’t walk on Lafayette and see the shop, it’s the end of personal nostalgia, and the beginning of history.'
Now you can see a rotating display of the objects sold in his Tokyo Pop Shop at theNew York Historical Society. The ceiling of the Haring's New York Pop Shop hangs over the Society's admissions entrance, and the exhibit will display a number of objects on loan from the Keith Haring Foundation.

Là est  la seule vraie question qui compte en ce qui a trait aux contours du futur marché de l'art.
