"Q: Do you care what people think? A: Everyone cares what people think, but luckily I seem to care less than most" Charles Saatchi is one of the moving forces of the modern age. Founder of global advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi and the most influential art collector of our time, he has vigorously shaped the contemporary art scene. His exhibitions, notably 1997's Sensation exhibition of the Young British Artists; Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, and Chris Ofili, among others, at the Royal Academy of Art, London and at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, sparked an explosion of controversy about new British Art Though he, famously, refuses to be interviewed, in this book he provides frank, genuine responses to a battery of questions put to him by leading journalists and critics as well as members of the public. My Name is Charles Saatchi and I Am an Artoholic was published in a first edition in November of 2009 but all copies of that printing have been destroyed.
