Hardly anything has changed art and society as much as Pop Art. Curiosity and boredom, the elemental forces of Pop, developed into a ‘High and Low Culture’ without caring for a specific goal: provocation as a mission. Embracing the blatant and banal was on the agenda. People who met in Warhol’s Factory with eccentric visions of life formed the state of today’s glamour world. Brands, symbols and icons were a source of inspiration for artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann, Robert Indiana, Mel Ramos, Claes Oldenbourg and Jim Dine.
