This Saturday, we’re screening Andy Warhol’s 1964 film Soap Opera, which intercuts actual television commercials with silent domestic scenes shot by Warhol. This rarely screened work exemplifies the artist’s radical
experimentation with and
dismantling of television as
both a technological medium
and an affective apparatus.
A discussion will follow.
