Andy Warhol’s visit to China is a founding moment for the idea of a Chinese contemporary. Warhol’s portraits of Mao of course connected him retrospectively to the situation inside the Middle Kingdom, but it was his visit a decade later, and the images of his personal photographer Christopher Makos in which it is commemorated, that put the defining critic of mass culture into dialogue with the defining mass society of the late twentieth century. The moment at which the world-famous Warhol, then nearing the end of his life and work, plunged into a society of unfathomable depth in which not a soul knew his face or name is nothing short of a watershed: the last possible instance of East/West incomprehension on such a scale, a time warp in which he appears akin to a prophet from the future, looking out on a population that would soon undergo the endless rounds of capitalist spectacle out of which his art had grown.
