Gay archive or pop closet? Warhol and the invention of queer historiography

Warhol's restoration and circulation of unreleased films between 1963 and 1969, together with the private collection of images and objects that he kept at his home – not at The Factory – have generated a mutation in the way his work is understood, and also in the notions of "pop" and "gay art". Warhol's work, the epicentre of a dispute between art, cultural studies and queer theory, has become a sign of the search for a new historiographic framework from which to reconsider consumption, visibility, sexuality and identity politics during the cold war and its connection to arts production.
