Andy Warhol by Alberte Pagán

By Alberte Pagán

Andy Warhol quizá sea el artista más renowned del siglo xx. Pero su cine, al que se dedicó intensamente a partir de 1963, cuando entraba en el período más notorio de su carrera como pintor, sigue siendo desconocido para el gran público. In­fluido inicialmente por las películas de Ron Rice y Jack Smith, Warhol pronto encontró su propia voz en una serie de películas minimalistas ("Sleep", "Empire") que lo convertirían en pionero del estructuralismo cinematográfico. Sin renunciar a sus presupuestos artísticos, alcanzó el éxito comercial con "My Hustler" y "Chelsea Girls". Reconocido como innovador, podemos rastrear su huella tanto en el cine formal más radical como en, al otro lado del espectro, las gamberradas del cine "punk" o espacios televisivos como "Gran Hermano" y similares. Este libro ofrece un paseo por l. a. materialidad de las películas de Warhol, lejos de enfoques conceptuales que utilizan las películas más como pretextos para el debate teórico que como textos para el análisis crítico.
