Professor Ara Osterweil contributed to The Films of Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné, 1963-1965 (ed. John G. Hanhardt, Whitney Museum of Art), which was awarded the 2022 Kraszna-Krausz Moving Image Book Award!
The Films of Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné 1963-1965 focuses on Warhol’s film works from the years 1963-65 during a time when the renowned artist produced hundreds of film and video works – short and long, silent and sound, scripted and improvised. The book features over 100 individual works which are catalogued in detail and combined with enlightening essays that cover Warhol’s influences, his experimentation with film, source material, working methods and technical innovations, as well as his engagement with the people he filmed and how they came to life on the screen.
“A monument as much as a book, and far more than a catalogue, although the textual history here is often almost as fascinating as the films, and the behind-the-scenes story- telling. Each word and image across these 500 pages adds something to the tale of two years of remarkable creativity.”
Edited by John G. Hanhardt; With essays by Bruce Jenkins and Tom Kalin, and entries by Jonathan Flatley, Elena Gorfinkel, Claire K. Henry, Bruce Jenkins, Tom Kalin, Homay King, Ara Osterweil, Marc Siegel, Juan Antonio Suarez, and Gregory Zinman."
