US public diplomacy through the prism of Andy Warhol’s Pop Art

Abstract : The current thesis studies the interplay between U.S. public diplomacy and Andy Warhol’s Pop Art. It argues that U.S. public diplomacy is embedded into three forms (the ‘hierarchical’, ‘hybrid’, and ‘horizontal’ ones) and that each form of U.S. public diplomacy follows its own, individual ‘principles’ of the international promotion of Warhol’s work. When U.S. public diplomacy takes the ‘hierarchical’ form, Andy Warhol’s Pop Art gets promoted internationally through the U.S. national participation in World’s Fairs and the Venice Biennale, and USIA’s travelling shows. When U.S. public diplomacy takes the ‘hybrid’ form, Andy Warhol’s Pop Art gets promoted internationally through MoMA’s international program of circulating exhibitions and the Art in Embassies Program. When U.S. public diplomacy takes the ‘horizontal’ form, Andy Warhol’s Pop Art gets promoted internationally through the gallery shows and museum exhibitions organized by U.S. and European art dealers and art curators who work independently from the U.S. government.
