The term folklore indicates a body of culture shared by a particular group of people – encompassing material and immaterial things, rituals, traditions and beliefs. With the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine, we have witnessed a new kind of folklore, born on both sides out of the military developments on the ground and the propaganda war raging on the Internet. Memes have been shared, art and propaganda has been produced, leaders and ordinary people have been recast into cultural icons. We call this body of culture shared by both sides warlore.
Warlore is the first book exploring the Russo-Ukrainian conflict from the cultural and aesthetic point of view.
114 pages long, it has two different covers and can be read just the same starting from the front or from the back. One side deals with the Ukrainian warlore, the other with Russian warlore. Warlore is the product of a collaboration between Iconografie, an Italian magazine about culture and aesthetic of the XXI century, and Bradley Davies, the curator of Propagandopolis, a visual project on the history of propaganda.
