In the mid-1950s, there emerged separately in London and the USA a movement that focused on everyday objects. Artists both critically reflected on and euphorically elevated consumption, advertising, everyday culture, and mass media. Andy Warhol, originally an advertising artist, was the pop star of this movement. With his Factory in New York, he exercised an international influence on the way art and media such as printmaking were viewed. Warhol operated with the principle of seriality. At the beginning of the 1960s, Pop Art came to Germany and became German Pop.
