Simon Martin: British Pop Artists and the Atomic Bomb
Whilst Pop Art is widely associated with a celebration of modern consumer culture, individual British Pop artists engaged in a critique of modern culture in the Cold War era. In this paper Simon Martin considers how events such as the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 led artists such as Derek Boshier, Colin Self and Eduardo Paolozzi to explore to heightened concerns about the threat of nuclear annihilation. These British-based artists are considered in relation to the response of American artists such as Warhol, Lichtenstein and Rosenquist to the atom bomb.

David Mellor: Shifting Frames on British Pop and its Culture
A more comprehensive historiographic view onto English Pop could pay dividends. Exclusive - painting only - have often been the norm, although writers such as Alex Seago have aimed at more inclusive accounts. David Mellor suggests that further excavations of the social and cultural histories of the 50s - which might deal with the larger environment of graphics, popular magazines and television, are worth exploring.
