3-27 Sept► Carried by the Wind- Lasse Antonsen at KKW
The project “Carried by the Wind” is inspired by the Cold War propaganda initiative where printed material was attached to balloons, launched from West Germany, and dispersed over Communist Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland. It lasted from 1951-56, and more than 500,000 balloons carried more than 300,000,000 leaflets and books.
What is Lasse’s propaganda? Come find out.
