Why Wharol Matters: debates, screenings and exhibitions at Viennale

October 14 –26, 2005

A series of events accompanying the Andy Warhol retrospective Working Class, a series of film lectures on the festival program, introduced at the VIENNALE 2004, will have a special follow-up this year.
Following last year’s lectures by Jean-Pierre Gorin, this year’s Working Class is dedicated to Andy Warhol and his cinematic oeuvre, complementing the Warhol retrospective, realized in collaboration with the Österreichische Filmmuseum. Under the title of Why Warhol Matters, the VIENNALE will present a five-part series of lectures, talks and interventions, dealing with Warhol’s cinematic oeuvre and his artistic work as such in many different ways.
Participants in this project are guests of this year’s festival, who will also present their own new works at the VIENNALE.
These include filmmakers William E. Jones, Romuald Karmakar, Heinz Emigholz and Milton Moses Ginsberg.

At the same time, Gerard Malanga, collaborator and actor in Warhol’s films, and personalities especially invited for the Working Class program, including Thom Andersen, Klaus Theweleit and Rainald Goetz, will appear at this VIENNALE special. Why Warhol Matters is the attempt of a free, associative approach to the life and work of one of the most influential, contradictory and mysterious figures in the history of Modern Art.

Gerard Malanga in Retrospect
This year’s VIENNALE pays the first comprehensive tribute to the American artist, author, photographer and actor Gerard Malanga in Austria. In addition to two full evening programs of selected films, Gerard Malanga will hold a poetry reading and talk about his collaboration with Andy Warhol in public discussions. An exhibition of Gerard Malanga’s photographic work forms a special part of the total program. This photographic oeuvre comprises the production with Warhol in the Factory, a series of portraits of friends and contemporaries as well as a choice of his photographs from the last 20 years.
With this homage, the VIENNALE pays tribute to, as Jonas Mekas likes to refer to Malanga, «one of the most important, most original and up until today most neglected artists of his generation.» Gerard Malanga will be our guest in the course of the VIENNALE.
Opening: Saturday, October 15, 7pm In the presence of Gerard Malanga

Filmmaker, Writer and Photographer
Gerard Malanga, a co-founder of Andy Warhol’s Factory, highly influenced the picture and film production
in the Factory. Apart from the fact that he played central roles in some of Warhol’s movies, they created the legendary Screen Tests together. In 1969, Malanga started publication of the influential magazine «interview.» Malanga was born into a family of Italian immigrants in New York in 1943. He works as a director, photographer and writer and has published photo books
(among others «Good Girls» and «Resistance to Memory») and several volumes of poetry (most recently «No Respect: New & Selected Poems 1964–2000»). In his preface for one of Malanga’s photo books, the poet and screenwriter Ben Maddow
wrote: «Gerard Malanga has the grand, essential virtue of a photographer: an attitude of submission to the shining complexity of real things.» Malanga lives in Brooklyn, New York. In collaboration with the VIENNALE, the Charim gallery presents an exhibition of Malanga’s photographic works. In addition, a poetry reading will take place at the VIENNALE ZENTRALE.
