Public Photographic Spaces: Propaganda Exhibitions from Pressa to The Family of Man, 1928-55

Prof. Vanessa Rocco was recently a contributor to Public Photographic Spaces: Propaganda Exhibitions from Pressa to The Family of Man, 1928-55, a book that focuses from a chronological perspective on photography as a tool for a new visuality and the rupture of the role of the spectator: photographic exhibitions from 1928 to 1955, from the spaces designed by Lissitzky’s to The Family of Man; the trajectory of utopian architectural-photographic space and from post-Revolutionary Russia to America during the Cold War. This space documents the exhibitions designed by Lissitzky (Pressa, Film und Foto, etc); German, Italian and Spanish exhibitions in the 1930s, and exhibitions in MOMA during the Second World War.
