Titre : Artforum: Structural Film issue
Éditeur : Artforum Press Artforum Press, New York, September 1971, New York
Date d'édition : 1971
The legendary Structural and Avant-garde Film issue of the magazine, edited by Annette Michelson and containing essays on Sharits, Snow, Frampton, Gehr, Wieland, Warhol. The essay on Warhol is Stephen Koch’s academic descriptions of Chelsea Girls. Koch had once been the beloved of Krauss/Michelson (now avoided like the plague), and he’s since come out, went back in, got married, and wrote a fiercely anti-socialist polemic – "in no particular order" as Godard would say – "used to be Susie [‘a drip’ as Gregory Battcock told it] Sontag’s babysitter" Koch, not Godard. Koch seemed to be a virulent defender of American patriarchy though the lovely Films and Filming editor in London (rightly and understandably) couldn’t – though he wanted to – print my review of Koch’s Warhol book as it included an analysis of his hysterical homophobic misogyny (aligned to the over-macho portrait on the back flap) in terms stating that coming out of the closet would obliterate all that hatred, a suggestion for which we all could’ve gotten sued successfully, even if the review (in 1972) was prescient of what then unfolded. Back to Artforum Structural Film issue: "Forward in Three Letters" by Peter Gidal, Annette Michelson, and Jonas Mekas had the makings of a polemical dynamic on duration and narrativity. When this Artforum issue first appeared, Simon Field, editor of After Image (now ex-director of Rotterdam Film Festival) came storming into the London Film Co-op where we were sweeping the floors whilst collecting the evening’s ticket money having just finished projecting films, raging that "one shouldn’t have written such an attack on Annette Michelson." The response was: "It’s about ideas, Simon, not people. And she can handle it anyway." Only issue of Artforum ever to go out of print. Mint. N° de réf. du libraire INDE-C7025
