DATE CHANGE for the August 7th Museum of Propaganda event to AUGUST 14 AT 12 NOON.
Tom Areton, the founder of the museum is stuck in New York and cannot do the August 7th tour. Although the museum is self explanatory by the usual visit, the information imparted by Tom is too valuable to miss.
"Propaganda is the calculated manipulation of information designed to shape public opinion and behavior to predetermined ends, as desired by the propagandist. Subjectivity, disinformation, exaggeration, and the outright falsification of facts are the hallmarks of propaganda practitioners”.
This collection of propaganda represents the political art of more than 25 countries, including North Korea, Cuba, Nazi Germany, Vietnam, Iran, and the Soviet Union. The objects on display were mostly designed and financed by various governments, dictators, and special interests with specific political goals in mind.
Tom and Lilka Areton have collected visual political propaganda for over 40 years. Their experiences living and traveling in totalitarian regimes affected them in profound ways and led to their creating this museum.
Tom will give us a guided tour of the museum, discussing the seven expressions in which visual propaganda is presented.
