Against Mussolini at Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art (London, UK)

Against Mussolini Art and the Fall of a Dictator
Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art
22 September – 19 December 2010

Whilst several major exhibitions have explored the propaganda imagery of Fascist Italy, art produced by those opposed to Mussolini and his regime has received surprisingly little attention in recent years. Against Mussolini brings together works produced in Italy and abroad throughout the Fascist era (1922-43), but focuses particularly on the period immediately after the dictator’s fall from power following Italy’s disastrous Second World War campaign.
