Defeating the Ideal: Art & Propaganda, from the Third Reich to the CIA

CCAD Honors Seminar / Fall Semester 2012

This website is a collaborative project created by the Honors students in HNLA101: Defeating the Ideal: Art & Propaganda, from the Third Reich to the CIA. The students in Defeating the Ideal studied how art is used as a propaganda tool during times of war. The class explored how governments have encouraged or suppressed artistic expression for political means, and how artists have directly influenced the course of history.
