Exhibitions | The impact of image during the First World War

From November 8th to February 1st 2015

For the Centenary of the beginning of the First World War the Musée de Flandre presents a small selection of advertisements, postcards and propaganda movies from its own collection.
Information is central to the war process, but its political use increased unusually after August 1914 and during the whole conflict. Targets are numerous: they want to rally national opinion for this long war and rally new countries too, but also get the enemy and its public opinion down.
