Event Description

“We didn’t think of our movies as underground or commercial or art or porn; they were a little of all of those, but ultimately they were just ‘our kind of movie.’”
—Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol was a remarkably prolific filmmaker, creating more than 100 films and the nearly 500 portraits-in-film known as Screen Tests. And yet relatively little has been written about this body of work. Warhol withdrew all his films from circulation in the early 1970s, and it was only after his death in 1987 that they began to be restored and shown again. With “Our Kind of Movie” Douglas Crimp offers the first single-authored book about the full range of Andy Warhol’s films in forty years—and the first since the films were put back into circulation. With readings from the book and screenings of films, Crimp shows us how Warhol’s inventive cinema techniques, his collaborative working methods, and his superstars’ unique capabilities make visible new, queer forms of sociality. Warhol allowed viewers to see queer forms of sociality—allowing us, in other words, to see against the grain, and to see a world of difference.
