Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The overall goal of this project is to illuminate how Pop Art, with special regard to Andy Warhol’s work, changed the definition of art. In the first few chapters, the decade of the 1960s and the Pop Art movement will be described. Then Andy Warhol himself as well as his art and his view on the 60s will be depicted, taking departure in his own memories from Popism (1980). Following this we give a presentation of the theories, which will serve as conceptual background for us to place our objects of analysis in. After the analysis follows a discussion of the various arguments and perspectives in the paper. Finally a conclusion answers the problem statement using the theoretical tools, our findings from the analysis, and discussion.
