Event Details:

The Hoover Institution Library & Archives presents Fanning the Flames: Propaganda in Modern Japan, a new temporary exhibition featuring rare nishiki-e (multicolored woodblock prints), kamishibai (paper plays), and other compelling material on the history of modern Japanese propaganda, encompassing the Meiji Era (1868–1912) through to the Pacific theater of World War II (1941–45).

This exhibition is part of a larger project, which includes an interactive website, a richly illustrated publication, and on-going speaker series, all which highlights the top-down delivery of propaganda, its pervasive influence on ordinary people, particularly young children, and grassroots participation in the consumption of propaganda.

To see the new temporary exhibition Fanning the Flames: Propaganda in Modern Japan as well as the re-opening of Hoover@100, please review the Hoover Tower galleries open hours and visitor information for more details. The exhibitions are free.

Currently open to the public. Reserve your entry ticket today on our eventbrite webpage!
