With four full-page chiromantic hands and several zodiacal and planetary illustrations in the text.
Some light browning, but a very good copy. All the most famous subsequent authors on the subjects are somehow indebted to Tiberti cf. Sabbatini, Bio-bibliografia chiromantica, Reggio Emilia, , pp. The original dedication by Tiberti to Ottavio Ubaldino, earl of Mercatello, is followed by a new dedication addressed by the editor Johannes Dryander to the Mainz nobleman Johann Furderer de Richtenfels. The text of the two Mainz editions differs significantly from that of the first Bologna edition, a thing that can only be explained by the fact that Dryander had not access to the first edition or to the manuscript used as a basis for the first edition; he probably had at hand only a defective manuscript and on several occasions he had to intervene to complete the incomplete text.
Tiberti defends palmistry and tries to prove it as a science. In the arrangement of the seven planets on the lines of the palm, he significantly deviates from his predecessors, creating a new system that had a long-lasting influence on his successors. The work was later put in the Index.
Antioco Tiberti was born into a noble Cesena family. After completing his studies in France, he came back to Italy, published his treatise on palmistry, which made him famous, and had the temerity to go to Rome at the invitation of Pope Alexander VI to defend his case. He did it so well that he was exiled, but not convicted.
In he went to Rimini, where he was arrested by order of Pandolfo Malatesta. While he was in prison, the latter visited him to learn about his future.
Tiberti predicted him that he would lose his lordship and would die in exile and in extreme poverty. Later, during an attempt to escape, Tiberti was captured and beheaded his corpse remained unburied for almost a year. Shortly after Malatesta was ousted by Cesare Borgia and died in exile and extreme poverty as predicted. The only source about Tiberi's life is an eighteenth-century manuscript Diatribae caesenates written by a certain G. Braschi and now preserved at the Malatestiana Library of Cesena.

Dialogi XLII. Louvain, Pieter Martens van Alst, March, Title within an ornamental woodcut border including the printer's device. Title printed in red and black and a full-page woodcut at the end showing the author with his patron and his wife kneeling in prayer. The two works are bound together in a blind-stamped calf binding made by the Flemish Jacob Clercx de Geel from Antwerp active from about to He was succeeded by his son Gheert who was married with Abraham Ortelius' sister Anna. Gheert used the same panel with the first name of his father erased.
In the same period, Jan Tys from Mechelen used a panel with the same design and the same text border but with his own name cf. Evidence and Principles, New York, , pp. On each cover there are two impressions of a panel divided into two rectangles each occupied by three animals above: dragon, rabbit, dog; below: cattle, eagle, deer enclosed within the curves of a vine branch.
Between these two panels is another panel figuring dancing peasants and a piper cf. This seems to be the only surviving specimen of the two panels in combination with the frieze of dancers signed by Jacob Clerx see also L. Indestege, Boekbanden iut vijf eeuven. Catalogus van de tentoonstelling, Gent, , no. Paris, , p. The work has an immediate success and only five months later a second edition appeared with thirteen new dialogues. It was mostly used in Northern European schools and was reprinted many times at Antwerp, Cologne, Paris and Lyon until the middle of the century cf.
Daxhelet, Adrien Barlandus, humaniste belge, In the dedicatory letter to his pupil Charles de Croy , later bishop of Turnai , he pays reverent tribute to Erasmus and Mosellanus as his literary models. The possibility of the dialogue genre led Barlandus to use the colloquies increasingly as a vehicle for the critical and often satirical and polemical discussion of the major preoccupations of his age, moral and religious topics far beyond the horizon of the schoolroom.
His Dialogi are of great interest not only as examples of the Latin used in the schools, and the methods of teaching it, but also as a source of information concerning school and university life in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries e. The Dialogi are historical documents of great value to those who would picture not only the various aspects of student life at that time, but of culture generally cf.
Brunken, Handbuch zur Kinder- und Jugendliteratur. Vom Beginn des Buchdrucks bis , Stuttgart, , cols. He continued his studies at the University of Louvain, probably in Having studied at the College of the Pig, Barlandus received the degree of Master of Arts in and began teaching Latin. In he was appointed professor of philosophy. In June he was elected procurator of the Dutch nation, a position he hold again in , , , and He also served terms as quodlibetarius in and and as dean of the faculty of arts in and He became one of the most ardent supporters of Erasmus and the new learning at the University of Louvain.
In autumn he composed a catalogue of Erasmus' writings for his Brother Cornelius. In he was offered the chair of Latin in the new Collegium Trilingue, but resigned in November , partly because the friction with the faculty of arts, of which he was still a member. In he was appointed to the chair of eloquence, a post he held until his death. For the use of his students he composed a Compendiosae institutions artis oratoriae and De amplification oratoria Barlandus was a prolific writer and published a collection of elegant sayings in , several historical works, among them De Hollandiae principibus , De rerum gestarum a Brabantiae ducibus historia , numerous paedagogical and moralistic works such as De ratione studii and Institutio christiani hominis His merits as a teacher and Latinist were especially recorded in Erasmus' Ciceronianus cf.

Champier was in Italy three times: in , in and in During his last travel he spent some time at Pavia, where he was admitted to the 'collegium artistarum et medicorum'.
The speech by Pietro Antonio Rustico, lecturer on logic and medicine, held on that occasion and printed toward the end of the volume, shows how proud Champier was about this honor. Rustico also alludes to Champier's family-ties in Italy, which he sees in the Campeggi families of Bologna and Pavia. At the end of the speech Rustico enumerates and praises the hitherto books published by Champier, important as an early bibliography. The main part of the volume consists of a 'epistolary duel' with Girolamo da Pavia, an Augustinian monk from Asti, with whom he had for five years an intensive correspondence through the Lyonese publisher Balthazar de Gabiano cf.
Ijsewijn, eds. He also sees in many Italian writers detractors moved only by jealousy and malice and mentions Valla, Merula, Poggio, Pico and Girolamo Balbo. Fierce of his Lyonnais origins he praises the antique origins of his native city on the authority of Berosus, which however was rightly questioned by Girolamo da Pavia cf. The volume contains furthermore various letters by Champier to others, e. But the book also contains letters addressed to Champier, mainly from other scholars and physicians, among them Alessandro Benedetti and Robert Cockburn, bishop of Ross cf.
MacDonald, et al. The volume closes with Catalogus preceptorum, patronorum, familarium et auditorum, in which Champier lists his teachers, patrons, friends and students. The few libraries, which hold a copy of this work and the few scholars who mentions it in their articles, all pretend the work to be printed either at Basel or at Venice.
They even printed another work containing letters by Champier Duellum epistolare see J. Baudrier, Bibliographie lyonnaise, VI, Lyon, , p. Symphorien Champier, was born into a bourgeois family at Saint-Symphorien-sur-Croise, near Lyon and studied at the University of Paris before , when he matriculated at the medical school of Montpellier, which granted him his doctorate in He taught liberal arts in Grenoble and took a doctorate in theology in In he was appointed physician to Antoine Duke of Lorraine, who brought him to Nancy. Champier followed the duke several time to Italy, where he was involved in the battles of Agnadello and Marignano During his stays in Italy he won recognition as an academic teacher from the University of Pavia.
In he became an alderman in Lyon, and for the last twenty years of his life he was at the center of the cultural Renaissance of that city, while simultaneously promoting the study of medicine by helping to found the College of the Holy Trinity and sponsoring translations of, and writing commentaries on, the works of Hippocrates and Galen. In the s he was involved in a controversy on the merits of Greek and Arab medicine with the German physician Lorenz Fries and also with the botanist Leonhard Fuchs.
Defensio pro Symphoriano Campeggio Champier became more and more hostile to Arabic medicine and in Clysteriorum campi contra Arabum this work was ironically put by Rabelais in his library of Saint-Victor , he even goes so far to advise his readers to refrain from reading the Arabs. With over fifty titles to his credit, Champier was a very prolific author, editor and compiler. His most important writings were in medicine, pharmacy, philosophy, and occultism, but he also worked in theology, history, biography, genealogy, poetry, patristics, and many other fields.
From all sides this serried band of doctors made such inroads into the camp of the barbarian that, wherever they stood, no place was left to the enemy' cf.

It was as if Bowie had found in the song a new recipe that combined his natural theatricality with a musically broadened palette, bringing together, if you like, the imaginative observation and symphonic ambition of McCartney with the grainy, urbane realism of Lennon.
Musically, it was as if the first encounter with Major Tom had the infinity of space as its backdrop, while the second took place in the claustrophobic metal box where he met his nemesis. His unassuming opening chordal dissonances, on the instrument whose light, jangling, chordal presence on a track was virtually compulsory in the s, the string guitar, betrayed the unravelling of musical surprises about to take place.
It also announced to the world the metaphorical centre-stage-entrance of Ziggy Stardust pl. It was a moment of theatre, for sure, but acted out in an arena, pop, of such contemporary power and resonance that it had the urgency and impact of a news report. What was original was the gesture, the culture shock, the artifice, even if the individual musical components had been heard before in their separate guises. His musical education, rather than being concentrated into his childhood and student days, as it is with many professional musicians, has been virtually uninterrupted since boyhood.
His discovery of the catalogue of GermanAmerican composer Kurt Weill —50 , for example, was made not as part of a university syllabus as was mine but as an intrigued, self-motivated adult. The way the lyric of this song is constructed, with its series of disjointed, theatrical declamations and exclamations in the verse followed by a chorus that paints a seemingly unrelated picture, shares many similarities with a classic Bowie lyric shape.
The result is chaotic not in a good way , sounding as if a passer-by has been let loose with a cheap toy drum machine somewhere within earshot of a real band of musicians. No one said experimentation always worked. Whatever smorgasbord of tastes had gone into their formative years, from on the Stones had a distinctive sound of their own, one that a skilled guitarist could pastiche without much difficulty. Drugs and under-age sex may well have been meat and drink to touring rock groups of the s, no less so for Bowie and his entourage by all accounts, but the manic energy with which they are celebrated in this recording is unusual.
Outside Long-term, on-off working relationships with a small group of key musical partners notwithstanding — Tony Visconti, Brian Eno, Carlos Alomar, Mike Garson, Gail Ann Dorsey, Reeves Gabrels, Mark Plati and Mick Ronson chief among them — Bowie has sought out a diverse range of musicians in his career, often one imagines deliberately placing himself or the musician in question out of their comfort zone, challenging him or her to avoid the expected, the easy reliance on muscle memory or deeply ingrained training. Play the notes you were not allowed to play.
For all the artificiality of the process, the aural results, in albums such as 1. Outside and Low, are certainly original and unpredictable. Outside, up a mountain in the Alps — we will never know. Low did not set the musical world on fire at the time of its release and many Bowie admirers found the switch of direction from Station to Station too drastic for comfort, but with the benefit of a longer period of reflection it has rightly been judged one of the seminal musical recordings of the late twentieth century. The triptych is distinguished not so much by the Berlin studio premises as by the creative chemistry of Bowie, Eno and producer Tony Visconti working in a milieu of electronic-acoustic experimentation, in a closed, creatively claustrophobic, often inescapably tense atmosphere.
Despite the fact that Bowie was submitting himself to the painful process of trying to shake off his addiction to cocaine at the time and that a dark mood would often descend on proceedings, these unpropitious conditions nevertheless bred a surprising degree of artistic freedom and the creative outcome successfully defied the commercial imperatives of the record industry — no mean feat in itself for an asset as valuable as Bowie.
Underpinning this pressure-cooker working environment was the inspiration of German synthesizer-based groups Kraftwerk, Neu! These so-called Krautrock bands, as well as Eno and others in the vanguard of electronica, were able to develop and thrive in the late s thanks to advances in synthesizer technology, led by Moog and ARP. Put bluntly, Low redefined what a pop album might be.
It was like frozen music. What mainstream music lovers were mostly unaware of in the mids was that this bare, musical stasis was in fact part of a growing, soon-to-be all-conquering movement across modern culture. The undisputed master of the genre is American composer Steve Reich, who in studying the drumming and mallet-based musics of Africa and Indonesia came to the realization that what seemed to be endless, hypnotic repetition in this music was in fact continuously, subtly changing.
He sought to adapt this theory of incremental transformation to Western music in a series of landmark works, which also extended its scope to include voice sampling and the derivation of rhythmic patterns from looped tapes of speech. David Bowie is the conduit through which this relatively private, art-music idea made the leap across genres into modern pop: Low was the project in which he brought about this crossfertilization. Brian Eno was his pilot into the new territory. It proved liberating to musicians the world over.
Within months, if not weeks, of the release of Low, the landscape in which other composers stood shifted in its direction. For myself, I borrowed a stupendously unattainable ARP synthesizer from a kindly producer and immediately put it to work accompanying the stage antics of my fellow student, the then barely known comic Rowan Atkinson.
And soon, with the revolutionary Yamaha CS polyphonic synth in my Kilburn bedsit, I was creating endless cassettes of Low-inspired songs and meandering instrumental expositions. My experience was multiplied a thousandfold among young musicians. The interaction of these two worlds, contemporary classical and pop, in the to and fro of Bowie, Eno and Glass, represents a milestone in the convergence of musical genres that has been the story of recent musical history. It must also be immensely gratifying to Bowie, a man whose artistic appetite has been unusually eclectic since his teens, to witness the gloriously fruitful interplay of art forms that is the reality of modern creativity: not many who dream of these rapprochements can also claim hefty responsibility for their coming into being.
David Bowie, composer, is one such catalyst. These new aesthetes have in common a visual sensibility so demanding that they are prepared to sacrifice almost anything for the look … Thems are the word made flesh. Thems put the idea into their living; they wear their rooms, eat their art.
Such willful contrarianism placed him in the same milieu as the more whimsical and experimental of his music contemporaries, including his elfin friend Marc Bolan and Ray Davies of the Kinks. Following the release of the album Bowie was forced to take up part-time work in a West End reprographics store and seemed to disappear for two years. Successive framings of his compelling form seemed to combine the qualities of nostalgia and futurism in tandem, ensuring that his image resided not in the present, but tantalizingly elsewhere.
In the digital age we perhaps forget how important album covers were in the promotion of stars, as vehicles for artistic collaboration and as signifiers of allegiance and aspiration among fans. Their vivid visual appeal and haptic immediacy offered a tangible connection between performer and listener: albums were. He goes on to make the following assertion:. In July he had met the mercurial avant-garde mime artist and dancer Lindsay Kemp, who would become a mentor and regular collaborator throughout the following decade, and from there on life had changed. Long, lightly curled hair falls to his shoulders while he raises a bejewelled arm to adjust the brim of a fedora.
In his other hand he elegantly holds a single playing card above the pack of cards that has been strewn across the floor of a studio whose red curtains and exotic accessories mimic the fittings of a Victorian opium den, a bordello or one of the many bohemian squats that peppered Notting Hill, Kensington and Camden Town in the period. By Bowie is the ultimate odalisque, resplendent in his provocation. In some ways his chameleonic persona was again simply soaking up the influences already surrounding him. Mr Fish and his generation of tailors on Savile Row and Jermyn Street had been selling kaftans and tightly cut unisex suits to wayward aristocrats, fashion photographers, interior designers and pop stars since Mick Jagger had long since laid claim to that turf, but Bowie is flirting more determinedly with the dangerous territory of sexual ambiguity.
Although maybe you did: Barthes might have picked up on the subtext of artifice and performance that everyone else seemed to overlook at the time. This riff on madness was perhaps closer to the themes of the record within, but its power to shock paled beside that of a preening Bowie in a man-dress. The second UK version of The Man Who Sold the World, released in with a monochrome image by photographer Brian Ward of a guitar-wielding Bowie kicking his leg in the air, could not have been more different to the effete Pre-Raphaelite ennui of its predecessor, or to the intervening retro-camp glamour distilled into the cover for Hunky Dory in pl.
A fan recalls having intense feelings about Bowie at this time, as described in a volume of pop-star fantasies collated by Fred and Judy Vermorel in I wish you could have been there to varda [see] him; he was so super. Released in April , Aladdin Sane pl. The strong fashion references continued in Pin Ups pl. These are. Bowie was magic and he was supreme. He had the qualities of a type of ruler. He was science fiction personified. To me he represented the most bizarre things which were evil and not of this world and completely beyond the imagination.
I really believed he was an alien of some kind. The colourized photograph exudes mystery,. Hugo Wilcken puts it succinctly:. After all, Bowie was hardly the only rock star in mid-seventies LA burning himself out on cocaine. And Bowie fell into that trap. And though Bowie later disavowed that punk held any sway over him, its visual codes and nihilistic nastiness did seem to herald the coming of the end of glam aesthetics for something far more disturbing. The cover of his release Young Americans pl. With his checked shirt, glinting bangle and sinuously smouldering cigarette, Bowie comes across like a young and androgynous Katharine Hepburn.
But the soft-focus effects were not to last. The move to America marked. Their harsh visual bleakness was irresistible to a generation of NME-reading sad young men and they generally were young men whose imaginative parameters were sketched out by the novels of J. Ballard, the music of Kraftwerk and the films of Nicolas Roeg.

Station to Station pl. Bowie, who starred as the alien Thomas Jerome Newton, is walking through the doorway of his spaceship represented in the film by an anechoic recording chamber. Writing about the way the image was used on the album, Wilcken notes:. On the original release it was cropped and black and white, giving it an austere, Expressionist flavour redolent of the European Modernism of the s and the photography of Man Ray.
The stark, red sans serif typography — the album title and artist are run together — adds to the retro-Modernist feel. Bowie himself hovers somewhere between America and Europe, his hair in a James Dean quiff, his tieless white shirt severely buttoned to the neck. It was as if the turmoil of the previous records had been focused on to the artwork of Lodger, leaving the music itself unsettlingly free of emotion. Berlin By the release of Low pl. This cover image returned its protagonist back to his shape-shifting of the early s, but also seemed to reveal the mechanics that lay behind his former incarnations as simple acts of performance.
Its rather alarming cover art, photographed by Brian Duffy, outstripped any of the music for boldness … Lodger represented a deliberate step into a world in which Egon Schiele became the art director for a futuristic horror movie, directed perhaps by David Cronenberg. It is all too theatrical to be true. Steve Strange went off to do the Moors Murderers. Frankie did her act, which was taking on some secondary Bowie characters … developing them in mime.
Out of that, of course, came Neon Night at the Blitz, the ascent of Steve Strange, Studio 21 and the whole new old world. This marked a paradigm shift in British pop music, where the promotional film and the world of the visual perhaps began to take prominence, eclipsing the importance of the album cover and even, arguably, the music. Meanwhile, in I still resided in a teenage bedroom in provincial England. By the autumn of I had left home and arrived in London.
Through the window you can see the twinkling sci-fi red on the Post Office Tower. We talk about apocalyptic nonsense and Bowie and the end of everything. All he ever does is change. Every song is a different side of Bowie and the world he sees. On 23 September , the Financial Times reported on the latest incarnation of the David Bowie fashion phenomenon, currently sweeping the nation.
But it is specifically the characters that Bowie created in the decade from the early s to the early s, and the images in which they are recorded, that have become such important points of reference: he has built an unparalleled bank of different looks and characters that have been captured not only through music but also in photographs, documentaries and feature films. Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris since , has always acknowledged the importance of rock music to her work as a fashion stylist. Her tenure as editor of Vogue has seen an emphasis on images inspired by rock music, including a music-themed issue that featured Kate Moss on the cover in a Ziggy Stardust pose pl.
Bowie later claimed this tattoo was inspired by Samantha from the s television series Bewitched, who often wore little shapes painted on her face. Bowie has always used artifice as part of his act. In a interview, asked if he regretted that much of his publicity was about his image, his response was a frank acknowledgement of how the star system and publicity worked: People must write about me as they feel. If someone thinks of me as an important fashion trendsetter, good luck. Just as long as they write about me.
How he was packaged was as much an aspect of his art as what the package contained. He has drawn from high fashion and channelled it to the street via his fans, but he has also channelled elements of street and subcultural fashion into the mainstream. Bowie consistently acknowledges the designers whose clothes he has worn and those he has collaborated with, from Freddie Burretti and Kansai Yamamoto to Thierry Mugler and Alexander McQueen, recognizing their contributions to some of his most important looks.
From his earliest teenage years, Bowie seems to have been an avid consumer of fashionable style: a photograph shows him as a neatly coiffed year-old in a three-button jacket, tapered trousers and a pair of sharply pointed winkle-pickers. He had already begun to experiment with dying his hair and modifying his school trousers. Fearlessly experimenting with changes in style and look in his early career, Bowie morphed from a sharp-suited mod to a shaggy-haired hippie, taking in fringed suede boots, leather jerkins and numerous hairstyles along the way.
Displaying an attitude perfectly in tune with the constant renewal and shifts that structure the fashion world, he rapidly assimilated and projected the look of the moment, then moved swiftly on. It just keeps my interest. It is out of necessity really to keep my functions alive.
An ankle-length skirt with inverted pleats fell from a tightly fitted bodice fastened with two decorative frogged closures, exposing the chest. The other dress, in a slubbed blue raw silk, had a more modest zipper fastening down the centre front, but was cut with the same tight bodice and pleated skirt. A headshot of Bowie in this garment appeared on the back cover of the album. In a period of conflicting sexual identity he shrewdly exploits the confusion surrounding the male and female roles.
Bowie would later say of the controversial image: It was a parody of Gabriel Rosetti. Slightly askew, obviously. He and frontman Freddie Burretti, a. In , Sgt. I had them made out of very flowery material, very feminine material, very colourful. He took us to see the movie, and our costumes were kind of the same: boots, boilersuits, but more colourful.
But then we went on to these black and silvery, sparkly suits, and Mick [Ronson, lead guitarist] had his pants tucked into his socks, with little bows on. That was a bit weird. She was constantly on the lookout for new clothing and styles for her husband and, as they wore the same size, they often shared garments. Images of David and Angie Bowie from this period have been endlessly referenced and re-created by the fashion world, with stylists and designers finding inspiration in shots of the Bowies at home in their flat at Haddon Hall, a Victorian Gothic villa in suburban south-east London, with styled hair and glam-rock fashions, often accompanied by their young son.
As fashion images go, these photographs epitomize the bohemian rock-star world of the s. In a American Vogue shoot by Stephen Meisel, models Hannelore Knuts and Diana Meszaros were dressed as David and Angie Bowie respectively, in a riot of snakeskin and multicoloured glam-rock-inspired suits.
Huseby pl. Huseby, styling by Jacob Kjeldgaard. This would usually be our babysitter Sue who lived downstairs … Although full of good intentions no-one else would last more than about 20 minutes before the pure hard graft of threading and stitching wore down all enthusiasm for the job. Rock journalist Lenny Kaye attended a Ziggy Stardust concert at Friars Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire in At the end of the show he took off his satin blouse and threw it into the audience.
The next day when I interviewed him, I tied it around my upper arm. Through Ziggy, Bowie appealed directly to a new young audience, addressing them in his songs and inspiring them to mimic his style, but to do so individually. His influence spread way beyond the realms of the suburban British teenager described artfully by Michael Watts in Melody Maker in July [He was] clutching his copy of the new David Bowie album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, which he hoped David would autograph after the show. He was wearing his red scarf, flung nonchalantly over his shoulder, and his red platform boots.
His hair was long down the back but cropped fairly short on top so that it stuck up when he brushed his fingers through it. He hated that it was dark brown. New collections from Paris and Italy, let alone Japan, could have little or no immediate impact on the general public — they were not available. Photographed by Hiroshi, the images featured model Marie Helvin, eyebrows shaved and wearing bright pink make-up, in fantastically sculptural multi-coloured garments: giant padded coats, dramatically curved trousers, floor-length circular skirts and PVC platform boots pl.
The conduit for this fashion breakthrough, David Bowie, was at that time living in the London suburb of Beckenham, where a copy of the July edition of Harpers would find its way. It was decorated with hand-drawn winged rabbits and hand-painted black swirls along the edges pls and Yamamoto designed a further nine tour costumes for Bowie, and presented them to him in April of that year when the tour arrived in Japan. It just kind of evolved. Hairdresser Suzi Fussey later the wife of Mick Ronson put the final coloured touch to the Ziggy hairstyle in February , having cut it into shape the previous month.
The style echoed that of a female model in an Alex Chatelain photograph, which appeared in Vogue Paris in pl. This turned into reality when I spied the Kansai Yamamoto model on a fashion magazine cover. In , I duplicated not only the colour from this cover but the cut as well. A complete lift. Absolute tosh! Tomasaburo, a star of kabuki theatre. I did the whole show almost blind. With its tight, streamlined fit — long jacket with wide lapels and wide-legged trousers with large turn-ups — the suit was of the moment.
While the light-blue suit followed the fashionable lines of the time, Burretti was experimental with his cut and patterns, using different seam arrangements, curved lapels without notches and an integrated waistband to give the suit a unique finish. Seams running diagonally from each shoulder towards the centre create an unusual V-shaped insert on both the back and front of the jacket. Bowie described the event in a letter to fans, published ten days later in Mirabelle magazine: Oh, what a night it turned out to be!
Knight has often referenced Bowie in his work, with images that seem to capture and channel the energy, lighting and glamour of a rock performance. He has also collaborated directly with Bowie: in he shot the cover photograph for the Black Tie White Noise album. Wearing the ice-blue Burretti suit pl. The suit is still sharp. Worn by Bowie on a journey from London to Aberdeen in May , it was captured by Mick Rock in a series of intriguing photographs. One of my great loves is clothes. With all my changes of mood Freddie is extremely patient.
He just listens to my ideas and has this sort of telepathy. Because whatever I think of in my mind he produces for real. Freddie comes across as a really tolerant and talented guy. He and his friends would saunter around with long bleached fringes and the requisite pleated trousers, the whole look finished with a copy of Kafka peeking out from an overcoat pocket. Bowie starred as Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien who lands on earth on a quest to bring water back to his drought-stricken planet.
The costumes for the film pl. This new character owed much to Berlin cabaret of the Weimar era with a touch of Marlene Dietrich , and the tour featured an almost bare stage with dramatic white lighting pl. While Britain was witnessing the birth of the punk movement in the mid to late s, Bowie was touring the world and living in Berlin. I really regret missing out on that. Defined by outrageous costumes and dramatic make-up for both sexes, proponents of the style were christened Blitz Kids and later New Romantics by the press.
In one of the most expensive music videos of the time, the club kids wore long gothic robes by Judith Frankland and dark imposing headwear designed by the newly established milliner Stephen Jones. Those first years, the Thin White Duke and all those guys, I really was dressing in character. The designer obliged with a beautifully constructed coat, which he had then artfully burnt and aged pl. Bowie opened each show of the Earthling tour in the McQueen coat, standing with his back to the audience, and wore it on the cover of the Earthling album, in a similar pose.
Discussing his approach to fashion in , Bowie inadvertently highlighted how his influence on fashion had come full circle. For the last little while Hedi Slimane has wardrobed me. David Bowie is staring at you so what do you do? Could you give an overview of how you see his relationship with this country has evolved over those years? Eliot and Brideshead Revisited. Suddenly one way out was America: American pop music, American films and American clothes. And parents hated that — all the talk about how the Americans came in to the War far too late — and how Hollywood claimed that they won it for us.
One of the things that Bowie did at that time was change the debate from class to gender; we were going on about class — Marx, demonstrations and all that — but he was talking about something else. How do you remember it? And then looking at photographs of David Bowie that were akin to pornography … he represented an extraordinary sense of enablement. It defines me. I was at a monastery school run by De La Mennais Brothers in Southampton, and I would arrive with a fur-collar coat and a trilby hat — in tribute to Bowie.
But it was beyond that, because he was beyond homosexuality. He showed that the way one looked could be a statement of identity at a time of incredible greyness and brownness — everything was brown in the early s, as you remember. Being in a monastery school gave a particular piquancy to it all. It was an entire other universe. What was your take when Bowie crossed your horizons? Ken Russell remembers growing up there and not being able to throw a stone without hitting a cinema.
More like the Bowie knife. But to me, he was Boughie, and was connected with science-fiction films, and he was initially scary. He looked like his dress sense came from A Clockwork Orange, there was clearly a whole thing about the mixture of bovver boots and gender-neutral clothing, which was in itself strange. You look at the early pictures of Malcolm McDowell from A Clockwork Orange with that very, very coiffed hair, but part thug, part effete, and non-specific gender.
And then, not so long after that, only a few years later, you get The Man Who Fell to Earth, which of course is his defining role, not just in cinema but across all these cultural references. The sense was that he was genuinely a space alien who had somehow ended up on earth, and ended up making recordings of bizarre extra-terrestrial poetry. You just thought that it was exactly what he seemed to have been. Consequently, you end up completely obsessing about them — and him. But he kept stepping out of that commitment — all sorts of commitments, actually: the commitment to gender, sexuality, personality — to anything.
He was such a fluid personality that a lot of the heavy mob in cultural studies never really forgave him; they thought he was copping out. He was moving the debate on from the crude Marxism of the s into the politics of identity. And Bowie was completely different, he was standing aside from all that and creating all these roles and being very detached, like a Pop artist manipulating all these signs.
A singing Warhol. People talk about this sense of vampirism, a transsexual vampire. It could be a science-fiction film made by Powell and Pressburger. You can almost feel it boring through his brain. He has been reduced to the essence of Bowie-dom. The way he looks in the film just takes on that step of always being beyond. It would have distilled much of the exhibition: breadth rather than depth; moving horizontally through information; life in inverted commas; no more grand narratives.
It works brilliantly! Then he just looks like a bloke in space-lizard make-up. He just had to be, really. Casting Bowie was quite a risk, when you think about it. Do you think it is part of the myth-making that is going on? Is it appropriate? It suddenly threw you back to the astonishing multimedia effect that the Ballet Russes had at that point.
I think it is the same thing for Bowie. But in the case of Bowie, to sneer would be ridiculous. It is always really difficult when you talk about anybody who first made their mark in pop music; to then talk about them doing anything outside that field automatically invites derision. Clearly it would be absurd to think anything but that it is completely justified. You take any five- or ten-year period within his career and there is more than enough to fill one exhibition. I would shy away from the idea that that is the only significant period, because I think his cultural significance is, if anything, more now than it was then — because he has passed into the ether.
In , 85 per cent all recorded music was classical music, now less than ten per cent of recorded music is classical. Another point is the high-low issue. Bowie radically stood for breaking down the distinction between, on the one hand, Dada, Duchamp, Baudelaire, Oscar Wilde, you name it — and on the other hand, Tin Pan Alley.
It used to embody those distinctions, and it now has to learn how to break them down, and get into the bloodstream of culture. To interpret visual culture across the spectrum. The videos are so important as extra information being overlaid over the lyrics of the songs. As long as we can find a way of conserving videos, in 50 years I suspect that will be what goes into the archive — the mixture of the two.
Then there will be the legacy, the rock family tree, and who he influences. I would say that Michael Jackson is a good example of someone who completely changes his image and act as part of the backwash from Bowie. It struck me that if Ziggy Stardust walked down Regent Street today nobody would blink an eyelid — but if he walked through a lot of other capital cities, Ziggy might have a lot of problems.
How do you see his overall impact looking back over 40 years? Like you, I went down to Heddon Street to see the plaque, which is deeply disappointing, I think. In on the same street where the plaque was erected was the Cave of the Golden Calf, which was probably one of the most decadent clubs ever devised in Britain.
There were men walking around with nail varnish on … So that sense of what Bowie means now is inflected by what he would have meant a hundred years ago. When you see that image of Ziggy Stardust, he might have been teleported there by Diaghilev or Warhol, as much as from a century in future. Nothing dates so much as the future from the past, but Bowie seems to have escaped that. I last saw him at Glastonbury in , when he just rendered everything else around him — and everything that had gone before — to be almost an opening act for what he was. Specifically, when you look at the progress of music, he has been influential throughout.
I saw Siouxsie Sioux and Steve Severin walking out. Tilda Swinton channels him, brilliantly, in fashion shoots. Oh, no, sorry. He had worked with German electronic bands long before everybody had a Kraftwerk album. He played the icon in Christiane F. And that ties in with the idea of being a magpie, a thief, of stealing things.
Of course he did; the genius of what he did was exactly that. Can I quote Oscar Wilde? All of itized, the same time as he signed to EMI. And on the Oscar Wilde-Aubrey Beardsley revival. I think his significance long-term is the distillation of that moment when Genet, and Burroughs, and Man Ray. Just visual languages were beginning to be understood, and our art was becoming that sense of something which is beyond concerned with referring explicitly to signs — New York was taking over from his control, almost. He embodies the symbolic relationship to the art and culture of the age in a very visual and aural way.
People will also look back on his beauty as we do at great Hollywood stars. Stills of Bowie will be like latterday Hollywood studio portraits. Two of the films listed in that section are Se7en and Inglourious Basterds. Just a Gigolo — terrible. Followed by Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, which actually nobody liked other than for the score but you went to see because it was Oshima.
The idea of putting Bowie right in the middle of that was very bold. That must have been a great avatar moment for him. Like Warhol himself using a double in a wig for media interviews. He was the product of that new attitude to commodification and to art, where Bowie, a musician, could be an artist — a fine artist.
That part was written for him before he arrived. This person who is completely ahead of his era, and is leading the era, and is an avatar that is untouchable. He symbolizes something that is unattainable for us all. Do you think he has any friends? I think commercialism defeated him in his age. There was an economist who reckoned that David Bowie caused the entire banking crash, because he gave everyone the idea of producing bonds out of thin air against the royalties of the future that might or might not happen, which created a trend for inventing financial services living on nothing.
More like Henry Fuseli if you want to go back to that period; Fuseli, who sold lots of pictures and really played the game. Pop was just a convenient platform for what he wanted to do. He brings it upon himself and then he feeds off it. He is created by that energy.
Bowie has played lots of parts, but we always talk about him as if they exist. All I know about is the myth, because that is what we are presented with. There were atrocities. They happened.
