Rock icon Debbie Harry — who became a 1970s and ’80s sex symbol as the lead singer of Blondie — opined on the topic in the forthcoming book “Portrait of an Artist: Conversations with Trailblazing Creative Women.”
She told author and artist Hugo Huerta Marin, “The only thing that isn’t about sex is politics. Everything else in the world is about sex: what you listen to, what you read, where you live, who you are with.”
The 76-year-old added of her band’s CBGB’s roots, “[Punk] was also about chaos and deconstruction — deconstructing musical ideas… There was a lot of satire around making fun of customs, the rules of adulthood, and what had been considered ‘proper behavior’ maybe 10 years before. There was also a big sexual component to it, which became very apparent. It was no longer just about good old boys talking about their lives on the road and picking up dirty women.”
A number of other iconic women participated in the book, including Uma Thurman, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, FKA Twigs, Miuccia Prada and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
While not all quotes in the tome are sex-related, Diane von Furstenberg, on being asked what role it plays in fashion, said, “Whenever I have fittings, when these young designers design clothes, I always ask, ‘Who gets laid in that?’ That is one filter for me.”
Martin was born in Mexico City and arrived in NYC in 2012. Two years later, he joined Marina Abramović’s studio as a graphic designer and art director; he’s also worked for the Guggenheim. The book is out October 5 from Prestel.
