The John Heartfield Exhibition
Welcome to this expanding online political art and graphic design museum.
It’s a tribute to John Heartfield and all political artists who dare to expose ignorance and bigotry.
Young dada artist John Heartfield dedicated his life to courageous political art.
Heartfield’s Photomontages of the Nazi Period
made him number five on the Gestapo’s Most-Wanted List. Living in Berlin, he risked his life, using only scissors, paste, pen, and his wit.
David King, of the Tate Modern, London, writes that, “John Heartfield is the greatest political artist and designer of the twentieth century.”

I’m John J Heartfield
, grandson of John Heartfield and the Exhibition’s curator. My grandfather used “art as a weapon” to expose the horrors and hypocrisy of The Third Reich while living under its shadow.
The John Heartfield Exhibition features never-before-published John Heartfield art, images, letters, postcards, video, and more from my private collection.
I’ll constantly add more of The John J Heartfield Collection
