15 MINUTES OF FAME 2016: LIMITED 7"
2016-05-20


Officially out now: another 7" taken from the re-issued album Communication – limited to 1.000 pieces!

Originally released in 2000, the programmatic track »15 Minutes of Fame« was the first single Bartos released and was an exciting peek into the world that was his upcoming full album. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s statement, “In the future, everybody will be world famous for 15 minutes,” Bartos used this as a template to comment on the increasing rise of celebrity culture unleashed by casting shows, reality TV programs, cooking contests etc. As Warhol had predicted and Bartos also tapped into, anyone could, and was becoming, famous, whether it was through singing, dancing, cooking, losing weight or surviving in a fake jungle. Communication takes this theme and societal observations further by focusing them through multiple aspects, of what Bartos calls our “new media reality”.

Available digitally for the first time.
