The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Minis, Mopeds, Mao

The 1960s in the Former West Germany
Mushroom hairstyles and Pop Art, student unrest and Karl May films – the 1960s were marked by the sense of a new beginning but also by contradictions: rebellious youth demanded the transformation of society; literature, theatre and film were politicised. The rise of pop culture was heralded by the Beatles and Mary Quant’s mini-skirt shocked the older generation.
Providing a comprehensive overview of the lifestyles and interpretive patterns of this decade, this book invites readers on a thrilling voyage of rediscovery through the worlds of architecture, living and design, fashion, art and youth culture, as well as literature, music and television.
