Stanley Kubrick “Cinema’s most renowned director was also the industry’s biggest hoarder”
Andy Warhol, a compulsive collector and shopaholic who never threw anything away, applied a method to his acquisitive madness. As rapidly as his stuff accumulated—cultural ephemera, source material and casette tapes—he put it in boxes, sealed and dated. The Time Capsules, arguably his most massive work, a self-portrait in the form of a miscellaneous archive, went largely unknown until his death. Every few months the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, where the collection is kept, exhumes the contents of a previously unopened Time Capsule for display.
