Step back in time with an expert and have a look of communist China. Not only for history-buffs, the propaganda poster art center is a MUST visit attraction in Shanghai.
In China of today it is hard to get the feel of the communist times. Once known as the biggest communist population in the world, China of today found its own path between communism/ socialism and capitalism. You can find government buildings with soldiers standing still on one side of the street and on the other you will see a Lamborghini show. But that was no always the case.
In Shanghai, established as a private collection of posters, stands the propaganda art center as reminisce of China's time after the last dynasty collapsed.
During your time at the PPC you will have a glimpse of China's propaganda from the times of the war against the Japanese in the 30's until the end of Dengxiao Ping leadership in the early 1990. The wide collections is an unforgettable one folding in it the different approaches leaders in China took to achieve their goals. Mainly focusing on the Communist time, the art center reveilles the tough times the communist had to unite the country under the new red flag.
