In three workshops offered during the run of the exhibition, Bruce Mau will present his Massive Change methodologies and demonstrate the potential of design to combine aesthetic with ethical and social considerations.

A celebration of the wild range of experimental art films from the Pop era. Introduced by artists and curators.

Pop: On Screen and Around the World is guest curated by Ed Halter and organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in collaboration with International House on the occasion of the exhibition International Pop on view at the Museum February 24 - May 15, 2016. This program is supported by the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation and the Japan Foundation.

Mr. Freedom
Dir. William Klein, France, 1969, 35mm, 92 min.
William Klein’s absurdist parody of American values follows the titular hero as he attempts to thwart a communist invasion of Europe in the most bombastic and outrageous way possible. Frighteningly ahead of its time, Mr. Freedom dares to imagine a world where American global dominance becomes a surreal comic book fever dream.

Preceded by:
Broadway by Light
Dir. William Klein, US/France, 1958, 35mm, 12 min.
A scintillating choreography of illuminated advertising signage, Broadway by Light captures the postwar excesses of American capitalism at its grandest.
