CINÉMA

L'Histoire des classiques du cinéma, c'est essentiellement toujours l'histoire d'une jeune femme ou d'un jeune homme au sommet de sa beauté.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: INSASTISFACTION

Dans notre 21unième siècle de médias omniprésents la nature du sentiment de permanente insatisfaction
tient de plus en plus au fait de ressentir toujours inconsciemment, mais de plus en plus fortement, la déception de ne pas avoir le don d'ubiquité.

«I BELIEVE MEDIA IS ART»

«By accepting the photograph directly into the domain of pictorial art, not as an external memory prop for the painter's handmade recreation of reality but as the actual base for the image on canvas, Warhol was able to grasp instantly a whole new visual and moral network of modern life that tells us not only about the way we can switch back and forth from artificial color to artificial black and white on our TV sets, but also about the way we could switch as quickly from a movie commercial to footage of the Vietnam War».

«SHOPPING IS MORE AMERICAN THAN THINKING»


MORE IS MORE

«At the same time, there's more media every day: cable TV, satelllite TV , new magazine starting up every minute. And with more media, they need more celebrity and more news to have something to talk about».

«I'M A GOOD CATHOLIC»


FRAN LEBOWITZ


«In the deluge of comments that descended on Sotheby's disposition of Andy Warhol's earthly possessions, perhaps the only unarguable point was made by Fran Lebowitz, the humorist, who had written a column for the artist's Interview magazine. Asked how he might be feeling about the event, she said: Andy must be furious that he's dead»

«ATHLETES ARE GOING TO BE THE NEW MEDIA STARS»


PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: ARGENT


Salvador Dali avait l'habitude de dire qu'il se revendiquait de la monarchie non pas au sens politique mais bien métaphysique. Dans un sens, cela nous rappelle Schopenhauer disant que l'argent c'est le bonheur dans l'abstrait et que quiconque ne pouvant plus trouver de bonheur dans les choses concrètes se dévoue alors entièrement à ce dernier. À quand une déclaration commune de Koons, Murakami et Hirst pour affirmer haut et fort la dimension métaphysique de leurs cotes sur le marché de l'art...

LE MARCHÉ DE L'ART CONTEMPORAIN: LA VRAIE QUESTION

Le recent article du magazine The Economist posait bien la question inhérente au marché de l'art chinois contemporain. Bien sur les chinois très riches achètent désormais l'art local tout comme l'art international. Mais souvent cela se fait sans tenir compte d'une quelconque valeur muséale éventuelle, de l'ancrage d'une oeuvre dans l'histoire de l'art, de son évaluation par les critiques d'art, etc. Dans le passé cela s'est toujours fait par le circuit plus ou moins informel de la filière juive. Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, Peggy Guggenheim, Gertrude Stein. Puis après la seconde guerre mondiale, d'autres juifs cette fois américains, ont pris le relai. Harold Rosenberg et Clément Greenberg, Henry Geldzahler, Léo Castelli, jusqu'à Charles Saatchi, et autres collectioneurs juifs de premier plan que sont aujourd'hui Elie Broad, Steven Cohen, ou Léonard Lauder. Les contours futurs du marché de l'art contemporain chinois se trouvent ainsi définis graduellement à travers cette simple question: les collectioneurs et propriétaires de galleries juifs vendent-ils davantage l'art chinois contemporain que les grands collectioneurs juifs ne l'achètent, ou est-ce plutôt le contraire? Quels artistes chinois ont recu des critiques élogieuses de la part de critiques et historiens de l'art juifs? En bref, l'art contemporain chinois : Is it good for the jews?

BEAUTIES

Beauties in photographs are different from beauties in person. It must be hard to be a model, because you'd want to be like the photograph of you, and you can't ever look that way. And so you start to copy the photograph. Photographs usually bring in another half-dimension. (Movies bring in another whole dimension. That screen magnetism is something secret—if you could only figure out what it is and how to make it, you'd have a really good product to sell. But you can't even tell if someone has it until you actually see them up there on the screen. You have to give screen tests to find out.)

LOVE IN THE 21st CENTURY

Love affairs get too involved, and they're not really worth it. But if, for some reason, you feel that they are, you should put in exactly as much time and energy as the other person. In other words, "I'll pay you if you pay me."

ALAIN FINKIELKRAUT ET CAMILLE PAGLIA: LA SIMILITUDE OU LE POINT WARHOL DE L'ART


À première vue, peu de choses semblent unir le philosophe juif français Alain Finkielkraut et la féministe américain «auto-proclamée «anti-féministe» Camille Paglia. Et pourtant quand on pense au monde de l'art actuel ou encore à celui de l'éducation, leur positions se rejoignent fort souvent. Alain Finkielkraut ne fait pas secret de son amour pour l'art moderne et de son indifférence envers l'art contemporain. Il qualifie les oeuvres d'un Jeff Koons de gros jouets criards et n'a guère davantage de sympathie pour celles d'un Anish Kapoor par exemple.

Paglia quant à elle, est une fan avouée d'Andy Warhol. Du même souffle elle affirme que la longue tradition d'art révolutionnaire ou engagée a pris fin en 1962 lorsque ce même Warhol exposa ses célèbres peintures de boîtes de soupe Campbell. Pour Paglia ce geste signifie la fin de l'art dit d'avant-garde. Celui -ci ne produirait depuis lors que des oeuvres stériles en ne se parlant qu'à lui-même dans une sorte de chambre à échos. Une tendance encore plus manifeste lorsque dit-elle, on considère l'abandon totale de la question de Dieu dans la vaste majorité des oeuvres d'art contemporain. Or pour qu'une oeuvre s'inscrire dans la durée et la pertinence elle ne peut évacuer cette question. Toutes les grandes oeuvres se sont confrontées d'une manière ou d'une autre au phénomène religieux. Soit pour illustrer une foi fervente soit en adoptant une attitude résolument anti- ecclésiastique. Mais jamais cette question n'a été évacuée par les plus grands artistes.
