One concept introduced in this week's materials was that Pop Artists, including Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, used their art to critique aspects of Modern American culture, including consumerism, commercialism, and capitalism.
Are there ways in which these artists fall short in their critiques? Do they effectively critique the negative aspects of consumerism, commercialism, and capitalism; or do they end up replicating many of these same problematic themes and practices in their work?
What have been some of the counter-arguments and critiques leveled against these artists?
After learning more about both sides of the discourses and debates surrounding these artists, what do you think? Do you fall more on one side or the other?
In their article on Warhol's "Pop Politics," Julia Ann Weeks discusses how Warhol's interest in celebrity culture intersected with the American cultural and political climate of 2008. Let's update this argument! How would you add on to what Weeks is talking about in this article/context, but reconsidered now from a 2019 perspective?
