Episode #5: Death and Disaster, Warhol and Weegee (Season 1, Episode 5)

ArtCurious Podcast

Andy Warhol's take on mortality wasn't about memorializing. He instead focused on the direct causes of death, or the aftermath of a terrible accident. His series, Death and Disaster, is one of the most well-known and polarizing of his career. But Warhol wasn't the first artist to focus on the everyday tragedy of death as a subject to quite this revealing and exploitative extend. That honor might very well belong to someone else: an immigrant photographer working in Manhattan in the 1930s and 1940s.  //SUBSCRIBE and review us on iTunes HERE!  And follow us on Twitter and on Instagram for more artsy goodness: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/artcuriouspod/                                                                  Twitter: https://twitter.com/artcuriouspod Looking for a transcription of this episode?
