England is considered to have been the cradle of Pop Art and produced numerous unusual positions on the phenomenon of the then truly revolutionary new art movement. In addition to motifs from everyday life, it is above all the idea that everyone is able to possess art. Copious masterpieces were created through the medium of printmaking, circulation art and multiples.

Düsseldorf lawyer Heinz Beck, whose collection is housed in the Wilhelm Hack Museum in Ludwigshafen, has gathered an outstanding collection of works from this period. His preference for reproduced work reflects the idea of a democratization of art that went down in history with the catchphrase of art for all. For the first time, Ludwig Galerie Schloss Oberhausen presents a selection of British Pop Art from this unique collection along with its special and individual traits.
