Accompanying a wide-ranging group of exhibitions designed to illuminate the significance of the photograph as a vehicle of social and political commentary, this catalogue presents reproductions of some 200 works that range from documentary images of war victims in Cambodia, Bosnia and the Middle East, propagandistic photocollages of the interwar period and portraits of contemporary heads of state to manipulated photographs of nudes and studies of domestic interiors and urban street scenes, the selection encompassing works by John Heartfield, Esther and Jochen Gerz, Eugene Richards, Nan Goldin, Muntadas, David Levinthal, Mimmo Jodice and many other postwar figures. More than 30 texts include discussions of the role of photography in shaping and preserving historical memory, interviews with several of the exhibiting artists, and critical assessments of the political and social implications of the featured works.
