Kerber, 2021. Softcover, 336pp., 6.7 x 9.5 inches
This catalog considers the history and political iconography of modern terrorism, focusing on the influence of terrorism on visual culture. Some of the terrorist organizations considered include the Red Army Faction (RAF), ISIS and the National Socialist Underground (NSU). Divided into three sections, this revelatory publication provides the first comparative examination of social revolutionary, far-right and jihadist terrorism. Twenty years after September 11, and ten years after the discovery of the NSU in the fall of 2011, Mindbombs explores the question of how acts of political violence affect cultural memory through the media.
