Decoding Dictatorial Statues

Edited by Bernke Klein Zandvoort. Text by Erika Doss, Leonor Faber-Jonker, Florian Göttke, Martijn Wallage.

Featured spread is reproduced from 'Decoding Dictatorial Statues.'

In the words of Hannah Arendt, “Half of politics is image-making, the other half is the art of making people believe the image.” From South Africa to Charlottesville, heated discussions over statues, their removal and their vandalism frequently make the news. Decoding Dictatorial Statues, a project by Korean graphic design researcher Ted Hyunhak Yoon, is a collection of images and texts exploring the visual rhetoric of statues in public space. How can we decode statues and their languages, their objecthood and materiality, their role as media icons and their voice in political debates?
The book responds to urgent concerns about the representation of our heritage by not only asking us to examine what history gets put on a pedestal, but also to consider the visual rhetoric of the statue itself.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

It's Nice That

Jyni Ong

Together, the editorial pieces, Ted’s photos and found stock-imagery, combine to create a Dutch-inspired design aesthetic which questions the symbolism of existing statues.

Brooklyn Rail

Cara Jordan

In his new edited volume Decoding Dictatorial Statues, Ted Hyunhak Yoon, a graphic designer based in Seoul and Amsterdam, deciphers the relationship between monuments and politics through a legible archive of human gestures used by sculptors, across time and geographic location, in the creation of dictatorial statuary, an ill-defined subset of memorial sculpture that seems to range from depictions of Roman emperors and US presidents to Lenin and Walt Disney.
