In Cold Revolution, essayists examine the relationship between visual culture and the radical social revolutions of 1950s Central and Eastern Europe. As international political tensions intensified and dictatorships rose to power, social realist art and design served as a means of societal critique. Here, 20 contributors explore the social transformations of 1950s Europe, with case studies on art, architecture and urban planning, design, photography, film and graphic design, from countries such as Poland, East and West Germany, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary.
