Author: Hal Foster
Pubpsher: Princeton University Press

And who probed the Pop revolution in image and identity more intensely than they? This book presents an interpretation of Pop art through the work of these Pop Five.
Pop art was essential to the Americanization of global art in the 1960s, yet it engendered resistance and adaptation abroad in equal measure, especially in Paris. From the end of the Algerian War of Independence and the opening of Ileana Sonnabend’s gallery for American Pop art in Paris in 1962, to the silkscreen poster workshops of May ’68, this book examines critical adaptations of Pop motifs and pictorial devices across French painting, graphic design, cinema and protest aesthetics. Liam Considine argues that the transatlantic dispersion of Pop art gave rise to a new politics of the image that challenged Americanization and prefigured the critiques and contradictions of May ’68.

Originating n England in the mid 1950s, Pop Art developed its full potential in the USA in the 1960s. It substitutes the everyday for the splendid : mass-produced articles are assigned the same importance as one-offs ; the difference between high culture and popular culture is swept away. Media and advertising are among the preferred contents of Pop Art, which celebrates the consumer society in its own witty fashion. The enthusiasm generated by Pop Art since the first works were exhibited has never died down - it is greater today than ever before.
