Burning Images: A History of Effigy Protests
Published by Valiz
Effigy hanging and burning, a specific theatrical form of political protest, has become increasingly visible in the news media, particularly in protests against United States military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, in US domestic politics, and in the Arab Spring. Taking these events as points of departure, Florian Göttke investigates the conditions of this visual genre of protest, its roots and genealogies in a number of countries, its aesthetics, and politics. The book delves deeply into the different practices, iconologies, rituals, protest and media strategies, as well as into politics.
