"Critical thinking can cause a nuanced world view"
Today we are overwhelmed by information and many want to influence how we think and behave. This creates great democratic opportunities, but also places demands on us people and our ability to critically think.
This exhibition shows how "good society" was highlighted in propaganda in Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in the 1930s and 40s. The exhibition is also about today's media society, what controls the media flow and how receptive people are to influence. The idea is that you who understand the propaganda's mechanisms can also think critically and look through manipulative messages.
Propaganda produced by the Forum for Living History. Inaugural speakers are Anders Lindberg, lead writer at the newspaper Aftonbladet. Bertil Bäckström, Forum for Living History, tells about the exhibition.
