Andy Warhol Inc.: How He Made Business His Art. Andy Warhol Inc.: How He Made Business His Art.
In the fall of 1968, still aching from an assassin’s attack, Andy Warhol returned to work in the bright new offices he’d rented on Union Square. After years of stardom in Pop Art, he pondered his future. “I was confused because I wasn’t painting and I wasn’t filming there,” he recalled. Instead, he watched his minions taking care of business.

Party palaces and funky funhouses: Freddy Mamani's maverick buildings Party palaces and funky funhouses: Freddy Mamani's maverick buildings
A bright green sunburst rises above the entrance to a building in El Alto, Bolivia, its mirror-glass rays tapering out to meet a yellow ziggurat-shaped pediment, beneath a momentous circular window. Polka-dot pilasters climb either side, zig-zagging this way and that, before terminating in an elaborate cornice, the whole ripe confection crowned with a surreal pitch-roofed chalet. It looks like ...

Michele Palazzo’s best photograph: a blue Beetle going nowhere in Soweto Michele Palazzo’s best photograph: a blue Beetle going nowhere in Soweto
I went to South Africa with my girlfriend in the autumn of 2016 for a friend’s wedding. We had a six-hour layover in Johannesburg airport before flying back to New York, so we decided to take one last trip before we boarded the plane. Some friends who lived in Johannesburg said it wasn’t the safest of cities – they told us to do some shopping to kill time. Five hours in a mall sounded awful, so...

A portrait created by AI just sold for $432,000. But is it really art? A portrait created by AI just sold for $432,000. But is it really art?
From a distance, Portrait of Edmond de Belamy, which has just sold at Christie’s in New York for $432,000 (£337,000), looks almost plausible. Up close, however, the paintwork becomes a grid of mechanical-looking dots, the man’s face a golden blur with black holes for eyes. Look into those eyes. They show no sign of feeling or life.

Robin Williams speaks for himself in new HBO documentary Robin Williams speaks for himself in new HBO documentary
When filmmaker Marina Zenovich sought to make a documentary about Robin Williams, she found that she could do it largely in the late comedian’s own voice. Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, uses a wealth of archival footage to put viewers inside his thought process — mirroring a routine Williams used as an up-and-coming comic in the 1970s. The film, which includes interviews with David Let...
