Ireland, Design and Visual Culture: Negotiating Modernity 1922-1992
Ireland, Design and Visual Culture is an edited collection of interdisciplinary essays on the subject of design and visual culture in Ireland from 1922 to the early 1990s. The essays, written from different disciplinary and academic perspectives, explore the tensions inherent in the visualization of the newly emergent State from the 1920s. The book explores the shaping of Irish modernity within varied visual discourses―architecture, advertising, currency, illustration, industrial design, print ephemera, public spectacle and theatre design―within an international context and suggests that Irish society was more open to European and American visual and cultural influence than has previously been considered.
