About the Author

Justin Jampol, Founder and Executive Director of the Los Angeles-based Wende Museum and Adjunct Professor of History at Claremont Graduate University, focuses on visual cultural studies and the connection between contemporary art and iconography from the Cold War-era. Jampol earned his Doctoral degree in modern history from Oxford University and studied as an undergraduate at UCLA. His work has been featured in The Atlantic, Art, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Macleans, and Humanities. He has produced two documentary films on the subject of the Cold War, as well as several urban art projects including The Wall Project, which received international attention and media coverage. He has curated several exhibitions, partnered with Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Craft & Folk Art Museum, and ESMoA, and has collaborated with artists Shepard Fairey, Retna, D*Face, and Herakut, and, most recently, with Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller.

Reviews

"The best-kept collection of Cold War memorabilia."
"A comprehensive pictorial history."
"...an extremely detailed story on the daily life in the DDR, probably a more coherent one than its inhabitants could ever tell. It is a fascinating and rich (with its weight of 5kg) source of the visual culture of that era, which is definitely making its comeback today...Inspirational goldmine for artists, designers (and hipsters), it will look majestic on your coffee table and it will certainly keep you amused for a long time. A real must-have."
"This magnificently produced volume offers a substantive contribution to (Cold War) debates and is an invaluable aid to a deeper understanding of a crucial chapter in Germany's turbulent history."
"...quite possibly the greatest such collection in the world."
