«GOOD BUSINESS IS THE BEST ART»

«Andy Warhol's Pop Art solo debut at the Ferus Gallrey in Los Angeles in july 1962 consisted of silkscreened paintings of larger-than-life cans of the thirty-two available flavors of Campbell's Soup priced at $100 each. Only six sold during the show, the first one to actor Dennis Hopper, but the gallerist Irving Blum bought those back to keep the set together, paying Warhol $1000 over ten months for the set. In 1996 Blum sold the set to MOMA for $15 millions.

THE GYM EFFECT

«It's amazing what happens when someone you know really gets going with their exercising. It usually happens so slowly that you don't even notice it, but after a year or so suddenly you realize that they're completely different. Where maybe they used to be sort of dumpy, now they look terrific and they know it, and they know that you know it».

«I THINK THE YOUTH OF TODAY ARE TERRIFIC»


KARL LAGERFELD SUR ANDY WARHOL

« [Etre comparé à Warhol] Ça ne me plaît pas du tout. Mes cheveux sont à moi pour commencer ! Je l'ai connu, j'ai même tourné pour lui, il était très gentil mais pas drôle du tout, un pousse-au-crime, un voyeur épouvantable. J'admire ce qu'il a fait, il est devenu le roi de la pop culture alors qu'il était un dessinateur de mode très moyen, mais je n'ai rien à voir avec lui, rien»

-Karl Lagerfeld.

LE TEST DU TEMPS QUI PASSE

Le grand collectionneur Charles Saatchi disait un jour que seuls Pollock, Warhol, Judd et Hirst ne seraient pas des notes en bas de page des livres d'art de 2105....Les paris sont ouverts. Bien sur la valeur des oeuvres de Damien Hirst a beaucoup diminué ces derniers mois. Mais il a déja accompli l'essentiel. Sa célèbre vente aux enchères est désormais passée à l'histoire de l'art comme étant une rupture radicale avec la façon de faire précédente. L'élément clé des Picasso, Pollock et Warhol en leur temps...

«MUSCLES ARE GREAT: EVERYBODY SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE THAT THEY CAN SHOW OFF»


SIZE MATTERS

Increasingly, the artworks on display are just as enormous, requiring cranes and teams of workers to display. Museums were once the only potential buyers for such room-filling pieces, but over the past decade an influx of wealthy collectors around the world has started buying ever-larger art trophies. All of it has prompted dealers to seek out artists whose work is hefty enough to stand out from afar—a prioritizing by size that never occurred in past generations, dealers say.

«MORE THAN ANYTHING PEOPLE JUST WANT STARS»


PETER BLAKE ON DAMIEN HIRST

He refutes the notion that money and record-breaking prices at auction have supplanted creativity as their motivation. "In Damien's case, his work is about money. But if the money stopped tomorrow, he'd be perfectly happy. He's down there in Devon right now looking after the kids, painting on his own in the studio, and he'd settle for that."The diamond skull was about making something that was worth £50 million, he didn't want the £50 million. The work has often been about the phenomena of money. In his case it's a valid reason to be painting. He's not greedy or avaricious, he's generous to other people. If it stopped tomorrow, he would have made his point. Damien's unique.

«EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL»


«IT'S CALLED GOSSIP AND OF COURSE IT'S AN OBSESSION OF MINE»

Well, technically they shared him — and we’ll use the terms “dated” and “boyfriend” very loosely. The man in question is Jacques de Bascher de Beaumarchais, an affluent quasi-aristocrat played in the film by Louis Garrel. In the early ’70s, de Bascher became the darling of the Parisian fashion scene and the object of Lagerfeld’s affection. Then, the It boy began an affair with Saint Laurent in 1973, fueling the rivalry between the two influential designers. The film suggests Bergé prompted their split. Either way, the relationship didn’t last, and the lothario died of complications from AIDS in 1989.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: RELIGION

JOUISSIF D'INTELLIGENCE


S'il est vrai que l'on a les intellectuels que l'on mérite, la France de 2015 a de quoi s'inquiéter. Le péan entonné par la médiasphère à la gloire du nouveau libelle* d'Emmanuel Todd en est la preuve. Le grand chelem médiatique a été offert à ce « savant » qui nous explique, chiffres, courbes, diagrammes et cartes à l'appui, que défendre la République, c'est, somme toute, être raciste et n'avoir pour toute référence que les Maurras, Déroulède et Xavier Vallat du nationalisme intégral.
Incroyable, mais Todd a osé ! Il a trouvé cette idée brillante à la façon de ces enfants qui jouent dans le sable, déterrent une vieille godasse et la brandissent comme un trophée de guerre : le 11 janvier, nous étions venus spontanément dénoncer des assassinats et rendre hommage aux victimes, sans nous rendre compte, têtes en l'air que nous étions, que nous faisions du pétainisme. Nous pensions pour la plupart témoigner de notre chagrin, mais dans notre aveuglement émotif nous n'avions pas remarqué que nous étions en train de « mettre en danger les Français juifs en maltraitant les Français musulmans ».
Car c'est bien là le premier enseignement du discours de l'ami Todd : chers lecteurs, vous ne voyez pas ce que vous voyez, vous ne pensez pas ce que vous pensez. Chers lecteurs, vous êtes pareils au prisonnier de la Caverne de Platon, vos perceptions vous abusent, et vous prenez les ombres et les fumées sorties de votre imagination pour la réalité. Ce ne sont pas les djihadistes qui ont abattu en janvier 17 personnes de sang-froid, mais des « victimes ». Oui, vous avez bien lu : des victimes d'un système inique et retors, d'une France moisie et sûre d'elle-même autant que dominatrice. La France du « néorépublicanisme »« plus proche de Vichy dans son concept que de la IIIe République ». J'ignore son fournisseur, mais son cerveau en surchauffe produit des concepts en batterie. Passons rapidement sur le ton sentencieux et les formulations méprisantes dont il souhaite apparemment faire sa marque de fabrique, à en juger par sa prestation sur France Inter. Nous ne manquons pourtant pas en France de précieux ridicules, mais sa naïveté de croire qu'il prend la Bastille à chacune des sentences qu'il expectore relève assurément d'une adolescence prolongée au-delà du raisonnable. Passons sur la méthode sociologique un peu cavalière d'un homme pour qui le « terrain » ne ment pas mais qui, pour s'y aventurer, fait des pointes de ballerine. Aux fins de statuer sur l'« esprit Charlie », il s'est carrément délivré de la contrainte d'aller y voir de plus près puisqu'il avait « des copains dans la manifestation » du 11 janvier...
L'essentiel, sous le paravent fallacieux de la critique du « néorépublicanisme » et de ce qu'il nomme le« laïcisme radical », c'est la tentative assez inédite de délégitimer, de flétrir et de diffamer ce sursaut citoyen et populaire. Une tentative qu'il avait déjà esquissée dans un journal japonais et dont Marianneavait rendu compte, en février : « Il y a un grand écart entre ce qui se passe actuellement en France et ce que je pense, a-t-il déclaré. [...] Avant l'attentat, je critiquais les dessins satiriques de Charlie Hebdo. Je ne peux donc pas être d'accord avec la sanctification de cet hebdomadaire qui a publié des caricatures obscènes du prophète Mahomet », expliquait-il doctement. "LES SUPPLICIÉS DE “CHARLIE HEBDO” ONT-ILS IGNORÉ JUSQU'À LEUR DERNIER SOUFFLE QU'ILS N'ÉTAIENT QUE LES "COLLABOS" D'UNE FRANCE ÉTRIQUÉE ?"Une tentative qui parvient aujourd'hui à son paroxysme d'efficacité puisque, sous sa plume, le 11 janvier n'a pas été un sursaut républicain marqué du sceau d'un unanimisme qu'il est légitime d'interroger, mais l'expression chimiquement pure de la « fausse conscience », une belle expression qu'Emmanuel Todd emprunte à Marx. Marx auquel il rêvait, jeune, de se mesurer. Mais, quarante ans après, le « dément-graphe » est plus proche de Groucho que de Karl.

IN THE FUTURE EVERYONE WILL BE NARCISSISTIC FOR FIFTEEN MINUTES


«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

Jobs, and the preparation of students for them, should be front and center in the thinking of educators. The idea that college is a contemplative realm of humanistic inquiry, removed from vulgar material needs, is nonsense. The humanities have been gutted by four decades of pretentious postmodernist theory and insular identity politics. They bear little relationship to the liberal arts of broad perspective and profound erudition that I was lucky enough to experience in college in the 1960s.
Having taught in art schools for most of my four decades in the classroom, I am used to having students who work with their hands—ceramicists, weavers, woodworkers, metal smiths, jazz drummers. There is a calm, centered, Zen-like engagement with the physical world in their lives. In contrast, I see glib, cynical, neurotic elite-school graduates roiling everywhere in journalism and the media. They have been ill-served by their trendy, word-centered educations.

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.
