Did you know that Andy Warhol's first own museum exhibition took place in 1968 at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm? It was expected to be cut off as American propaganda - but the reactions went apart. "Warhol 1968" is an exhibition about the earlier exhibition and an exhibition explaining the complexity of Warhol's artistry from the breakpoint in 1968.

 

The time before 1968, Andy Warhol was characterized by both fascination and disgust for the mass media and commodity community. 1968 was also a dramatic year for Warhol and just a few months after his exhibition in Stockholm, he was subjected to a murder attempt. Afterwards he would have to move in partly new courses.
