Product story

Thus the pioneering German graphic artist, animator and set designer John Heartfield (1891–1968) described his intention when making his works. One of the most important, innovative and courageous artists in the struggle against fascism and Nazism in pre-war Germany, Heartfield used photomontage as a potent weapon of political agitation – to accuse, enlighten and expose. The anger and the creative energy he unleashed in these classics of political art reached millions and put him fifth on the Gestapo’s most-wanted list. He escaped arrest in Berlin in 1933 and went into exile in Czechoslovakia, later moving to England. Today, with the rise of ‘fake news’ and right-wing radicalism, the art of this outstanding photomonteur and typographer has lost none of its power and relevance. This handsome catalogue, comprising high-quality reproductions, new research by European and American scholars and contributions by leading artists, brings Heartfield’s work to a new audience.
