Formatted Abstract/Summary
All attempts to tell us something new about Warhol, to make sense of his work, even to attribute a new moment in art to him, are redundant, only to betray his most radical message. In saying this, we could only ourselves invent a new end for art that it would somehow be about. This contemporary could only be seen as postmodern. But it is certainly this end that must be thought against all efforts to consider what Warhol did as art and to put it in a museum or exhibition. For us here now these two Warhols -the postmodern and the contemporary -coexist, and we are unable to choose between them. We can speak of the contemporary only to make it postmodern, but the truth of Postmodernism is perhaps this contemporary, an end of art that no longer takes place within art itself.
