Political Advertisement IX 1952–2016
For 32 years, artists Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese have been compiling a history of presidential campaign spots, following the evolution of political advertising from its beginnings in 1952 to the present. Political Advertisement is a personal vision of how politics and politicians are presented through the medium of TV.
For the past nine general elections, the artists premiere the latest version of the tape in a public presentation, followed by a discussion about the impact of campaign advertising. This year, they are coming to ASU Art Museum. Join us to view their work and take part in a discussion on politics, aesthetics and art.
The is event is co-sponsored by ASU Art Museum and ASU School of Art.
