An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.
In celebration of the Netflix series The Andy Warhol Diaries, I have published this playlist with Warhol documentaries. It was originally set to “private” but I can imagine there will be more people wanting to know more.
I ve loved Warhol since the 80s, and actually got the diary around 1989/ 1990, as well as a box set with drawings of cats “by Andy Warhol’s mother” That box is one of the stories I learned the whole background story from, in the older documentaries you can find in the list.
Sadly, I donated the books, purging my book collection. It must have been somewhere between 2002 and 2015, when I often had semi-permanent housing, caused by moving to another part of the country where I did not have a place to live.
And then another round began when a relationship ended.
I needed to find housing again, and often had temporary leases.
During that time I got rid of all my art books, with the exception of the Keith Haring ones. Mainly because they were smaller.
But I got rid of all the others. Which at the time seemed, or maybe was, a small price to pay to keep volume manageable.
But every time that hardcover first edition Warhol Diaries comes by in the Netflix series, the black and silver, with the orange letters, exactly the one I had received as a gift and that had been mine;
The new Netflix series talks a lot about how little Warhol was appreciated as an artist, during his life.
But I think it took me until now, or maybe summer 2021, before I finally caught up.
Whatever happens, whatever life throws at you; Keep your art.
You will miss it more than everything else.
