Postcards Collection

About the Postcards Collection

The postcard played a crucial role in 20th c. visual culture, tourism and global exchanges, defining modern national topographies, and iconic ways of seeing (and being in) the world. Postcards contribute to place- and sight-making, and to constructing visual as well as nationalistic and cultural discourses, travel networks, and socio-economic and cultural exchanges.
