Pop art engages with mass-produced imagery borrowed from popular culture. It is often referred to as a primarily North American and British phenomenon, with a wryly celebratory attitude to modern consumer culture.
The World Goes Pop expands the notion of pop art into a far wider geographical context, showing how different cultures and countries contributed to the movement during the 1960s and 70s. In doing so, it becomes clear that the strategies and visual techniques of pop have been applied to issues beyond consumerism, addressing social imbalances, censorship, the role of women, sexual liberation, tradition, war and civil rights.
