POP vs CAMP

In Revolt into Style (1970), George Melly wrote that in the Sixties Pop was a sort of synonymus with Camp.

Nowadays to avoid the confusion is much more easier.

Although Camp supported the achievement of Pop Art, Camp has been contaminated by many other styles; at the same time Pop helped Camp style to become more lively and popular, but Camp is older than pop of 300 years at least.
