Warhol in ChinaWarhol in China

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Foreword by Ai Weiwei. Text by Michael Frahm, Tony Godfrey, Andy Warhol. Interview by Philip Tinari, Jeffrey Deitch.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) flew to Beijing (via Hong Kong) in 1982, recording his impressions in brief journal entries while also photographing with his typical fanatical diligence. He encountered a capital virtually untainted by advertising and commerce, but nonetheless on the verge of an enormous transition. Following Mao's death in 1976, an art scene was slowly beginning to emerge in China. Under Mao, art had been deployed mainly as a propaganda tool to communicate government propaganda. By the time of Warhol's visit, new artistic strategies had established themselves. The Political Pop movement, Gaudy Art and "The Stars," a group of younger artists to which Ai Weiwei belonged, were all greatly influenced by Warhol and other protagonists of Pop. For this group, Warhol's classic silkscreen print "Mao" (1972) served as a critical point of departure for their artistic reevaluation of the iconography of communism. Warhol's presence in China electrified Beijing's avant-garde, and his photographs record both his own delight in encountering the city's artists (as well as other sights--he was much impressed by the Great Wall) and their delight in him. These photographs consequently possess both artistic and documentary merit.

Andy Warhol in China: The Photographs of Christopher MakosAndy Warhol in China: The Photographs of Christopher Makos

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Foreword by Ai Weiwei. Introduction by Peter Wise. Interview with Christopher Makos.

A documentation of Andy Warhol's 1982 visit to China, this volume offers a unique glimpse of the international pop star by Christopher Makos, his personal photographer. With the advantage of hindsight, this volume becomes complexly ironic--in China in the 80s, almost no one knew who Warhol was. Just a few decades later, in 2006, Warhol's 1972 "Mao" sold for $17.4 million to a Hong Kong real estate tycoon. And Chinese artists have, for years, been incorporating Western pop iconography into their work.
Photographer Christopher Makos became known in the 1970s for his candid shots of Warhol. Henry Geldzahler, the former Curator of Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has written: "It is a great asset in Chris Makos' photographs that they reveal new and unfamiliar faces of the legendary pop figure..."

Andy Warhol: Ladies & Gentleman, Sex Parts, Torsos, PolaroidsAndy Warhol: Ladies & Gentleman, Sex Parts, Torsos, Polaroids

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essay by Nobuyoshi Araki.

Here you will find over 400 Polaroids by Andy Warhol of street hustlers and call boys engaging in sexual acts and posing as drag queens. The pictures inspired paintings known as the Torso Series but, as Bob Colacello recounts, were known around the office as the Cocks, Cunts, and Assholes Series.
