Abstract:
This thesis investigates government-sponsored exhibitions originating in the USSR and Eastern Europe held in Britain between 1956-1979. These incoming manifestations of cultural diplomacy were a locus for cultural exchange during the ideological conflict of the Cold War, providing temporary public spaces in which cultural artefacts from the eastern bloc – perceived as an unfamiliar, isolated and rival territory – were displayed and responded to. This research scrutinises the organisation and reception of these usually reciprocal displays of art, historical artefacts, and commercial goods on the British Cold War ‘home front’.
