Within the strange, small enclave, which chooses to call itself “the art world,” these conditions are regarded as having special portent. In a linkage that is not merely theory or proposal, both Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol questioned the premises of Urban Culture itself: Warhol concentrated on the folly, and reality, of capitalism and its effects, while Beuys appealed to nature as an escape from the predatory gangsterism of culture. The ideologically saturated images that spewed from the Factory read like color studies under the control of an elevated purpose: to impose clarity on the familiar, providing a cynical but realistic glimpse into a formalized dystopia.”
