Art and Ideology: A Colorful Exploration of the Crossroads of Art, Politics, and History LDF79
How does art reflect our political ideologies? At the 1937 Paris World Fair, in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin displayed the products of their cultural, political, and industrial ambitions. The same fairground also included Picassos Guernica, probably the most famous and influential war painting of all time. The purpose of this presentation is to first, tour the 1937 Paris World Fair and explore how Fascism, Socialism, Anarchism and Liberalism impacted modern and contemporary art. At the same time, taking ideology in its widest meaning, well explore how any thought or belief system impacts the visual arts, with special emphasis on, but not limited to, the art and events of the 20th century, including examples of architecture.
