The power of iconic memory: iconoclasm as a mental marker

Author
Organization
Abstract
Iconoclasm has a particular effect in that it creates an image that is even more powerful than the image it has destroyed. While many physical images might have disappeared due to the iconoclasm, the mental image of all who witnessed this dramatic moment in history was indelible. This article argues that artists made conscious use of the emotional and cognitive power of such mental images to give their work meaning.
