Exhibition at MANA Contemporary New Jersey (since 2016), Kunsthaus Apolda 2018, Städtische Galerie Rosenheim 2015/2016.

In cooperation with the Ayn Foundation, the DASMAXIMUM Foundation is currently showing in New Jersey unique screen prints by the American pop art artist Andy Warhol (1928 Pittsburgh / USA - 1987 New York) which have not yet been shown in this breadth. The art patron Heiner Friedrich, who with such legendary foundations as the New York Dia Art Foundation and since 2011 also with his museum DASMAXIMUM set striking signs against a fast-moving event culture, provides essential portfolio works. His close collaboration with Andy Warhol from 1965 to Warhol's death in 1987 resulted in the careful and outstanding selection of the prints, some of which were transferred from the original Warhol Factory packaging to the German gallery walls.

After graduating from 1949, Warhol was considered to be one of New York's most respected graphic designers. From 1960 he devoted himself exclusively to free art and established as a co-founder of Pop Art to one of the world's most prominent artists. By legitimizing the traditionally commercial screen printing process, he broadened the boundaries of art, just as he did with the selection of his subjects from the areas of consumer society.

Around 100 originals from Warhol's portfolios, including the classics Marilyn, Campbell´s Soup Cans, Mao, Skulls, Flowers, Lenin, Kimiko as well as Sunsets never before shown or the series Love and Saint Apollonia with rare collages and proofs, can be seen in Rosenheim from December 2015 to June 2016 and in Apolda from January to July 2018. These are masterpieces of silkscreen art that demonstrate such precision, creativity and confidence in the use of artistic means that they fully affirm Warhol's fame as one of the most important artistic personalities of all time.
