Notes on ‘Boom, Boom, Boom for real’ by Dieter Buchhart

“Only Xerox is live. You are just a copy.”
Anonymous graffito

The article “Boom, boom boom for real”, written by Dieter Buchhart is part of the catalogue Basquiat Boom for Real that supported the exhibition of the same name at the Barbican Centre in London in 2017.

This article looks at the practice of Jean-Michel Basquiat from the perspective of the ‘remix’-er as opposed to the more ruling tradition of framing him as a ‘wild-style’ neo-expressionist painter.
