Kurt Andersen: Coaster ‘Visionary’


Portfolio‘s Jeff Bercovici reports that media renaissance man Kurt Andersen will fill the post of “visionary-in-residence” at Los Angeles’ Art Center College of Design in spring 2009. To hear Andersen tell it, his job description demands he “make up some inter-disciplinary course, curate a lecture series, and just hang around with students, I guess.” Radar, ever-frugal, has already spared ourselves the cost of auditing Kurt’s art-school venture, catching a glimpse of the man’s genius through secretly obtained private correspondences between Kurt and Spy co-founder Graydon Carter on the occasion of the publication of Spy: The Funny Years. Re-enjoy, all!
