Descrizione

Across Vietnam, a variety of modern propaganda posters can be seen. These generally commemorate historical and political events, or relate to Vietnamese culture or modern Vietnamese society. Please note that this book does not contain propaganda posters created during wars with France and the United States, although those events are referenced on some of the posters in this collection.

This is the second collection that I have put together, following on from '101 Modern Vietnamese Propaganda Posters' which was published in 2019. It comprises 143 public propaganda posters and 13 posters that can be seen outside the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City. The posters are different from those published in the previous book, though some are similar since the Vietnamese government tends to focus on certain events and anniversaries.

Each poster is accompanied by an approximate translation and historical/cultural references where appropriate.

This collection is not meant to support or criticise the posters or their use.

150+ Modern Vietnamese Propaganda Posters - Mark Griffiths

Introduction

I have been taking photographs of Vietnamese propaganda posters since I arrived there in 2015.

This is the second collection. The first can be found here https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/988557

I truly admire them as works of art and I love how the artists incorporate little details into them, such as the ‘hand heart’ which has become so common in recent years.

The poster themes broadly fall into four categories:

1. National Defence

2. Party History

3. Society and Culture

4. Health and Safety

These themes seem to me to encompass the way in which the government wishes to portray itself to the people – the defender of Vietnam, its history, its culture, its people and, of course, its future.

There are 143 public propaganda posters in this book. In addition, there is a fifth group of 13 posters which can be found outside the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City.

Note how frequently women are portrayed in the posters, not only in the traditional role of caring mothers.

The posters are shown without frames or backgrounds, but I have included two photographs of street views towards the end of the book to illustrate the usual size of the posters.

Dates are always in the day/month/year format.

The translations are my own and may not be exact, given my less than perfect Vietnamese.

They are for guidance only.

I hope you enjoy these posters as much as I do.
