The dissemination of information-facts, arguments, rumors, half-truths or lies- to influence public opinion.
Persuading the public became a wartime industry as words, posters and films waged a constant, more subtle form of warfare that fought for the hearts and minds of its citizenry. An aggressive propaganda campaign with strategies to galvanize public support helped to sustain the war effort throughout the world-shaking events of World War II.
“Propaganda: The Power of Lies” comprises 17 framed, WWII era propaganda posters. Each poster is accompanied by an interpretive label (24”W x 6”T) which includes the title of the poster, country of origin, year, author, and a brief description about the poster. The exhibition also includes a title sign (30”W x 36”T) and 12 didactic text panels (24”W x 12”T). These text panels discuss and define the various terminology used in persuasion techniques such as “pinpointing the enemy” and “bandwagon” techniques.
17 framed posters, 17 labels (24” x 6”), and 12 text panels (24” x 12”).
