Art Historical Anthology
“Visualization of Upheaval. The strategies and semantics of images from the end of communist rule in eastern Europe” is a art historical anthology including ten contributions and edited by Ana Karaminova and Martin Jung | Frankfurt a. M. 2012. Which difficulties and possibilities found in visual representation are linked to the end of communist rule in eastern Europe? Which images of the time of upheaval became icons, and when and how? How were images from the times of upheaval then coupled with artistic production? Based on these key questions, the contributing texts discuss examples found in many countries and examine with varying academic perspectives different media (formats), ranging from films, music videos and advertising images to artworks and museum displays. In doing so, the articles reveal the diversity of approaches to the topic, and clearly point to the facets of the “Visualizations of Upheaval”.
