German Pop

Hermann Albert's "Frau 7" (1969) is reproduced from Schirn Kunsthalle's superb new exhibition catalog, German Pop, published by Walther König. Essayist Dietmar Rübel quotes a 1964 article by Gottfried Sello, which functioned as a confession in the form of a writing experiment. "You are sitting in an airplane; the stewardess (a heavenly Pop model, if taken apart and reassembled anew) puts the tray with the cup of coffee and the sandwich and the cream and whatever else on your knee, and halfway through your meal, when the cellophane is crumpled up and the coffee has spilled and the sugar has started to turn brown, you pause (I pause, you pause, we all pause): please don't move rien ne va plus—the Pop still life! Your desk, your trashcan, your coffeemaker, your shower, and the girl that slips into her panties: all Pop, nothing but Pop. Pop, we are surrounded by you." German Pop is one of Dan Nadel's picks for Best Books of 2015.
