About John J Heartfield

John J Heartfield has studied his grandfather’s personal and professional life for many years. He was fortunate to spend summers with his famous grandfather in Northern Italy and other European locations whenever John Heartfield could secure a temporary visa from East Germany. He describes the times he spent with his grandfather as “some of the best times of my childhood.”
Red Burns, legendary founder and former chair of the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University, wrote of John J Heartfield, “From the moment he entered our program, John evidenced the wonderful combination of skills and talents which inspired him to study multimedia — a computer programmer and a musician with a keen appreciation for the visual arts. In other words, a wonderful blend of the technical and the artistic. John thrives on challenges, and he is a relentless learner.”
Upon completing his M.A. at New York University, John J Heartfield received a Tisch School of the Arts Award “for pioneering work in interactive media.”
Japan’s Ministry of Trade and Industry (MITI), The Tokyo Metropolitan Government, and The Multimedia Association of Japan honored John by inviting him to Tokyo to inaugurate the Time 24 multimedia facility. While in Japan, he gave presentations to large audiences of government officials, corporate leaders, and multimedia professionals. He led a two-week seminar for young brilliant aspiring multimedia artists.
He has given presentations about his grandfather’s life and art to enthusiastic audiences at venues as diverse as New York University, corporate conference rooms, and outdoor events such as Mahnmal Friedenskreuz St. Lorenz in Austria.
Professor Heartfield has designed and taught more than twenty-five university courses in digital media design and programming in schools such as the Tisch School of the Arts (New York University), The College Of New Jersey, and Queens College, City University of New York.
His professional roles have included Creative Director, Senior User Interface Designer, and Media Programmer. He was a sought after multimedia consultant for several of America’s largest corporations. Now he’s working to help small businesses succeed on the Internet.
He is passionate about this exhibition’s twin goals:
• To increase the recognition and renown of his courageous grandfather
• Expand the exhibition into an Online Museum For Progressive Art, Exhibitions Against Ignorance.

Many artists suffer for their their art.
All artists suffer promoting their art.
