The use of physical images in art as part of political indoctrination

The politicized art and the politic aestheticized had created what could be called a beautiful illusion, a complete lie. Art was made part of the politic, but not in the sense to smooth it, but in the sense of using it as a tool.

A large part of art works, painting, literature, sculpture, theater have as subject the aesthetic of the past war, but it is aestheticized even the preparations for what may come.

In literature are created positive heroes, figures presented according to the given artistic models, using the narrative fantasy that projects them into political realities. Monumentalism it appeared in physical size of sculptures and paintings that show the figure of the leader, and further highlighting the smallness of the individual and the emotions of fear.
