Warhol and Queer Shame
The watershed moment in the critical discussion of queer shame in Andy Warhol was the 1996 publication of Pop Out: Queer Warhol, which included contributions from the volume’s coeditor Jonathan Flatley, Michael Moon and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. Her work in turn became an important point of departure for Douglas Crimp’s 2012 “Our Kind of Movie”: The Films of Andy Warhol. This article revisits the argument that queer shame is central to Warhol’s work and then extends it to his Pop aesthetic – which does not, prima facie, thematize queerness or shame – by considering Warhol’s dismissive comment on Susan Sontag’s “Notes on Camp” (1964).
