Seeing Things Our Way: Art as Propaganda

Visual art has been employed as propaganda since the days of the early Greeks, often in works that few people now would suspect were intended as such.

Learn about how one ruler’s desire to legitimize his position helped to kick-start the Renaissance, and American arts’ possible role in the Cold War of the 1950s. Special emphasis is placed on the cataclysmic events of the 20th century, and its demand for art capable of mobilizing multitudes to fight, to survive, to obey.
