John Waters Opens a Time Capsule – Discovering Photos

Filmmaker John Waters stopped by the Warhol to offer his insight into a Warhol Time Capsule, and focused on the budget for Bad, some interesting photos, Joe Dallesandro, reminisced about Susan Tyrrell, Grace Jones, and the disappearance of Ingrid Superstar, while explaining that twink is the new chicken. A fraction of the fruits borne through his enthusiastic support of the proposal made by museum staff to the Warhol Foundation in 2006. As that multiyear project winds down (also thanks to IMLS and state funding), we continue in our efforts to make our collection available online.

Check out the Part 2 video from John’s visit here.

In this video: John Waters discovers photos and discusses homosexual slang throughout the years.
