4.0 out of 5 stars Not all propaganda is revolutionary art, 30 Dec. 2013
This review is from: The Art of Influence: Asian Propaganda (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not all propaganda is revolutionary art and not all revolutionary art is propaganda (nor is it necessarily artistic . This is the key message I got from reading THE ART OF INFLUENCE: ASIAN PROPAGANDA by Mary Ginsberg. This book is a companion to the exhibition of the same name at the British Museum which I unfortunately didn't have an opportunity to see. The book has examples of propaganda (not all artistic) and revolutionary art from India, China, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, etc. predominantly during the 20th Century. This book is full of colourful examples of these "artworks" alongside detailed analysis and exploration of various pan-Asian themes covering both war and peace. A rather interesting book, that is both informative and enjoyable to browse.
