Stephen Koch

An unforgettable portrait of Warhol’s most fascinating invention – his own public image, the strange impassive persona that this fey, frightened and brilliantly talented poor boy from Pittsburgh created to survive the savage world of his own ambitions. Stargazer explores the obsessions with sex, glamour and death, together with the perverse conceptual thrust of his cinematic vision that set the seal upon his reputation. Koch brilliantly defines what Warhol called his ‘Pop Statement' meditating on the powerful connections between the man and the moment that all of it possible.
