This Was Tomorrow: Pop Art in Great Britain
30 October 2016 – 19 February 2017 2016–7
Richard Hamilton’s trailblazing multimedia installation “Fun House” was realized for the exhibition “this is tomorrow” in London in 1956. Exactly sixty years later, the retrospective survey “This Was Tomorrow” at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg brings together not only painting, sculpture, collage, architecture, drawing and installation, but also film, music, television and photography in one multimedia, spatial mise-en-scène, to create a comprehensive panorama of Pop Art in Great Britain.
