This two-day symposium explores Pop beyond the mainstream. Organised in
collaboration with the Royal College of Art, London, this event engages
with new research in different fields and geographies to rethink
orthodoxies as well as develop new interpretations of ‘Pop’.

Of particular importance is the often critical nature of these global
engagements with Pop. Reacting to the increasing dominance of the
American post-war economy and media around the world, Pop art sometimes
took the form of a destabilizing reversal of the normative messages
associated with American culture and consumerism. This dialectic was
effectively and memorably put to use by feminists, political groups and
independence movements in order to simultaneously critique the hegemony
of the West while drawing on its aesthetic mass appeal and graphic

To date, the history of Pop art has tended to affirm the hegemonic
position of New York. In an attempt to challenge the simple linear
trajectory of influence that has dominated most accounts, this
symposium will explore Pop beyond the mainstream and open the
definition of Pop to critical re-thinking.
