Picturing Power in the People’s Republic of China

This richly illustrated book provides an innovative reinterpretation of the Cultural Revolution through the medium of the poster_a major component of popular print culture in China.

Using an array of full color and black-and-white reproductions of posters, an eminent group of scholars explores the discursive power of visual artforms in Chinese public life. They provide an interdisciplinary analysis of political art produced for a Chinese audience and acknowledge the importance of subjectivity in elucidating important cultural facets of the period. Readers interested in Chinese cultural or political history, popular culture, and art history will find this a unique and perceptive work.
