Andy Warhol's "Blow Job" PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Andy Warhol's This work contends that Andy Warhol's notorious 1964 underground film, "Blow Job", serves as rich allegory as well as suggestive metaphor for post-war American society's relation to homosexuality. Arguing that "Blow Job" epitomizes the highly complex position of gay invisibility and visibility, the text uses the film to explore the mechanisms that constructed pre-Stonewall white gay male identity in popular culture, high art, science, and ethnography. It draws on discourses of art history, film theory, queer studies, and cultural studies to situate Warhol's work at the nexus of Pop art, portrait painting, avante-garde film, and mainstream cinema. Rarely produced Warhol art and previously unpublished Ed Wallowitch photographs along with now iconic publicity shots of James Dean are presented, establishing "Blow Job" as a consummate example of Warhol's highly insightful engagement with a broad range of representational codes of gender and sexuality.
