Overview
The Communist superhero: Mao s starring role in Chinese propaganda art With his smooth, warm, red face which radiated light in all directions, ChairmanMao Zedongwas a fixture inChinese propaganda postersproduced between the birth of the People s Republic in 1949 and the early 1980s.Chairman Mao, portrayed as astoic superhero(a.k.a. the Great Teacher, the Great Leader, the Great Helmsman, the Supreme Commander), appeared in all kinds of situations (inspecting factories, smoking a cigarette with peasant workers, standing by the Yangzi River in a bathrobe, presiding over the bow of a ship, or floating over a sea of red flags), flanked by strong, healthy, ageless men and masculinized women and children wearing baggy, sexless, drab clothing. The goal of each poster was to show the Chinese people what sort of behavior was considered morally correct andhow great the future of Communist China would be if everyone followed the same path toward utopia by uniting together.This book brings togethera selection of colorful propaganda artworks and cultural artifactsfrom Max Gottschalk s vast collection of Chinese propaganda posters, many of which are now extremely rare.
