Agitprop is a noun that refers to propaganda distributed through art.

Our word of the day comes from the Russian word that refers to ‘the agitation propaganda committee of the Communist Party.’ Today, agitprop may be used to refer to art with a political agenda of any kind.

I wasn’t expecting agitprop when I took my ten-year-old to see a puppet show. But those furry little puppets sure had a lot to say about contemporary politics.
