Andy Warhol: The Mechanical ArtAndy Warhol: The Mechanical Art

Published by La Fábrica.
Edited with text by José Lebrero Stals. Text by John Finlay, Robert Rosenblum, Peter Schjeldahl, Rosalind E. Krauss. Interview by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh.

Andy Warhol: The Mechanical Art highlights how Andy Warhol (1928–87) explored the cult of merchandise and consumerism, sensitively tracking how the mechanical had morphed from the industrial inventions of the 19th century into something new.

Always attentive to technical and industrial breakthroughs, Warhol used all types of techniques and machinery, from silk-screen printing to video recording, with production patterns that he himself defined as "pertaining to an assembly line." Deliberately seeking an impersonal, mechanical art in a creative subversion of traditional expectations for art and its makers, Warhol traded in transfers, copies, projections and repetitions.

This catalog brings together a selection of more than 250 works by Warhol, focusing on the technical and conceptual evolution of art in New York in the second half of the 20th century. It also includes portraits of the artist by photographers Alberto Schommer, Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe. Essays by Robert Rosenblum, Peter Schjeldahl, Rosalind Krauss and an interview conducted by Benjamin Buchloh delve into Warhol's creative and production processes.

Warhol Memoir

Published by Charta.
By Christopher Makos. Foreword by Tom Ford. Introduction by Glenn Albin.

As did Warhol by Makos, this volume contains a relentless sequence of photos of Andy Warhol, taken by his long-time friend and companion Christopher Makos. Unlike that first book, this one is comprised of photographs which have mostly never been published, pictures of the more private, reserved Warhol. The man who promised everyone 15 minutes of fame would perhaps appreciate having these pictures put out for the public posthumously: pictures of him at the Pompidou, clowning around during Lent, with Fred Hughes on a private plane, in front of the original The Last Supper, corseted and getting a massage, on the deck of Calvin Klein's Fire Island beach house, modeling in an 80s Op-Art shirt, at The Factory with everyone from Catherine Guinness to Georgia O'Keeffe, kissing everyone from Dal' to John Lennon, working out, skiing in Aspen, and shopping in Upstate New York.
