During the eighties, Cold War tensions rose as the Reagan and Thatcher administrations took more aggressive postures toward the Soviet Union. In the face of government policy, artists, directors, musicians and even Mr. Rogers spoke out against nuclear aggression. Images of nuclear war pervaded pop culture, from the tragic to the silly, and had a surprising effect on policy.
Come to the Free Space for a tour of eighties Cold War culture, complete with film and video clips and potted history. This presentation is still in the workshopping stage, so if you have thoughts, memories or observations about Cold War culture, there will be plenty of space to share!”
