This chapter charts the changing nature and transformation of Maoist propaganda and iconography in China from 1949 to 1979. Providing rare insight into the mechanics of the production and distribution of art and propaganda, Stefan R. Landsberger’s contribution focuses on three examples, explaining and giving context to a variety of contradictions, which upset any homogeneous treatments of this surprising chapter of Chinese art history. Landsberger demonstrates how, rather than conforming to any kind of cultural directives, Maoist art and propaganda from this period often subverted rather than affirmed Mao’s Yan’an Talks.
