Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine Ceases Trading After 50 Years

Interview Magazine, founded by Andy Warhol, folds after nearly 50 years

Warhol co-founded the magazine with British journalist John Wilcock in 1969, but its trademark cover - featuring close-up images of celebrities' faces, the word "Interview" in bold script overhead - began in 1972.

Fabien Baron, who left interview as editorial director in April due to lack of payment after a decade as editorial director, said he's "saddened and surprised by the news that Brant Publications has chosen to shutter the cultural icon that Interview has been since its founding". He was hired in 2009 to help relaunch the magazine and successfully added 200,000 subscribers. "Baron claims the magazine owes him "over $500,000 from invoices between 2015 and 2018" and owes Poiblanc "$66,000 as a stylist". Dan Ragone, who was Interview's president for six years, also sued in 2016 for allegedly unpaid wages of about $170,000 and that case is still working its way through the courts.

The publication, which was launched in 1969, has reportedly filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which entails the liquidating of assets. Katz further said she was unjustly fired.

At its height, Interview was nicknamed "the Crystal Ball of Pop" and virtually defined eras of Manhattan as characterized by Warhol's factory of avant garde superstars and socialites, the uptown decadence of Studio 54 and the downtown punk scene of CBGB and the Mud Club. "The beauty of doing interviews for this magazine is the joy of discovery".

Interview's offices are reported to be closed effective immediately and it is unclear if any issues already in the pipeline will be published.

Truman Capote was one of Interview's earliest contributors, and Warhol also conducted many interviews. Over the years, it featured conversational interviews with celebrities like Liza Minelli and Grace Jones and other features, including Warhol's trademark "15 Questions" interview.

After Sischy's exit, Interview took a more mainstream turn that included Kardashian covers (including the infamous Kylie-in-a-wheelchair shoot).
