Bilderfronten. Die USA im Ersten Weltkrieg

An exhibition designed and curated by students of the Historical Seminary and the America Institute. Propaganda posters mobilized, caricatures criticized and commented, moving images fascinated. Popular visual media in the USA documented, interpreted and influenced the events of the First World War. This era also saw the first heyday of new techniques from color printing to film, which not only created floods of images but also picture fronts.
