Synopsis: Made available to the public for the first time, these posters from the archives of the German Historical Museum reveal a regime determined to influence and control the citizens of East Germany. In the age of the internet, poster art is fading into history, but its importance as historical document remains valuable and enlightening. An inexpensive and efficient means of mass communication, the poster was used extensively by Communist regimes in order to maintain state control. This collection of 150 of the most outstanding works from a selection of more than 10,000 posters archived by the German Historical Museum features works that are both poignant and valid in light of current global politics. Although propaganda posters were used in a variety of communist countries, those that emanated from East Germany are unique in their subtlety and nuanced messages. Many posters appropriate American or Western European symbols and others used humor to get their point across. Grouped chronologically according to such themes as post-war years, the prospect of peace, denouncement of the West, and praise for Communist allies, these beautifully reproduced works provide a historical and cultural snapshot of East Germany during its entire history.

About the Author: David Heather is an expert on propaganda posters and their creators. He is the author of North Korea Posters and Vietnam Posters (Prestel).

Book Description 40 Jahre Klassenkampf: »Die DDR - Mein Staat« wurde in den 70ern beschworen und eine »Großfahndung nach Sekundärrohstoffen« in den 80ern angeordnet - Plakate sind ein Spiegel der Geschichte und vermitteln auch mehr als 20 Jahre nach ihrem Verschwinden hautnah Zeitgeist und Lebensgefühl der DDR. Das Deutsche Historische Museum in Berlin besitzt mit mehr als 10.000 Werken eine der weltweit größten Sammlungen von DDR-Plakaten, zu denen neben politischen Propagandabildern auch Werbe- und künstlerische Plakate zählen. Dieser Band zeigt erstmals eine Auswahl von rund 130 der prägnantesten politischen Poster und vermittelt, wie die DDR-Führung Einfluss auf die Meinungsbildung ihrer Bürger nahm: eine Geschichte des Kalten Krieges in Bildern. Die Auswahl ist chronologisch von den 1940er- bis Ende der 80er-Jahre geordnet, jedes Kapitel beginnt mit einem kurzen Einleitungstext, Bildunterschriften informieren über Gestalter und Entstehungszeit. 24 x 30 cm, 160 Seiten, 150 farb. Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 644439
