The Pop Art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art. Yet their works also addressed the downside of capitalism and consumer culture, such as the obsession with superficialities. This tour shows how Pop Art could become, at one and the same time, a phenomenon of both mass culture and subculture, and how their strategies still influence artists to this day.
