With Pop Art in the 1960s came “everyday” to art. Many of the artists from this period find some of their designs in consumer or commercial objects and thus also in food. They present the topic of food, known since the Renaissance, in a new way. For example, they oversize food by inflation, or highlight their color. Surely this is only a part of popular culture, but the theme is ideal for the launch of our advent calendar around culinary delights and fancy foods in art and culture.

The exhibition features with some 150 major works of the leading protagonists of this art movement the whole range of pop art. In addition, it also provides a historical view into the private collection of Peter and Irene Ludwig.
