Propaganda: Power and Persuasion

decoration17 May 2013|17 Sept. 2013

Propaganda is all around us. It is used to fight wars and fight disease, build unity and create division. Whether monumental or commonplace, propaganda is surprising, sometimes horrific, occasionally humorous - and never neutral.

"Propaganda: Power and Persuasion" is the first exhibition to explore 20th to 21st century international propaganda. From the eye-opening to the mind-boggling, from the beautiful to the surprising, posters, films, cartoons, sounds and texts reveal the myriad ways that states try to influence and persuade their citizens. Visitors will find themselves looking anew at the messages, methods, and media used by different states - discovering how they use propaganda through time and across cultures for both power and persuasion.

If you go to London in June, don't miss the
