Explore the political art of Asia, uncover its lighter and darker shades, and discover the dynamics of the histories and cultures that created these striking works. Posters, prints and drawings, money and medals, teapots, textiles and other objects show how propaganda art reflects - and is shaped by - the political, social and economic circumstances of its production. Through these objects, the exhibition sheds new light on propaganda's collaborative and coercive aspects. Its distinctive ability to build nations, defy enemies, construct identities, change minds and educate populations paints a complex picture made from more than just lies and manipulation.British Museum Great Russell Street, London.
