This year is the 50th anniversary of the high-water mark of the hippy movement: the 1967 ‘Summer of Love’ in San Francisco. Against a backdrop of serious racial unrest, the Vietnam War, and a consumer-oriented society, there emerged a genuine counter-culture that strove to find new ways for people and countries to co-exist. Visitors to San Francisco 1967 at the Museum Folkwang can enjoy the largest poster exhibition on the Summer of Love so far held anywhere in Europe.
