It is one of the exhibition events currently in Europe…

so why not make the most of it by hopping on the Eurostar? Outside of its permanent collections (including Picasso, Warhol and Dali), the Tate Modern now displays work by one of the experimental artists of 20th century – Sigmar Polke – who, alongside Gerhard Richter, pioneered the capitalist realism movement (Pop Art). Dedicating an entire retrospective to him, which bears witness to all the most fantastical mediums that he could have used, the British museum reveals the debates and doubts that this artist challenged; the consumerist society and the values of Western society in the 1960s. There are also questions about drugs, travel and hippies…Fun and inspiring.
