The Commercial Appeal of Communism:  Semiotic Tensions in the U.S. Stoli Advertising Campaign
University of Maine, USA.

Abstract [en]

Postmodernism made a strong impact on the visual analysis of advertising. Still, it tends to confine visual analysis, as this article demonstrates through a case study of a print advertising campaign for Stolichnaya vodka in the USA in 1994. A new visual figure of speech, "semiotic tension," is introduced. Semiotic tension is structurally related to the concept of resonance, with its focus on a positive syntactic relationship. However, semiotic tension extends this theory by incorporating syntactic relationships that bind two elements in their negative relationship to each other. The aim is to contribute to a more diversified, semiotically informed methodology for a visual approach to advertising.
