John Heartfield’s Art For Die rote Fahne

Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg founded the newspaper Die Rote Fahne (“The Red Flag”) in Berlin on November 9, 1918.

When the German Communist Party (KPD) was formed in 1919, Die Rote Fahne became the party’s central publication.

The newspaper was outlawed following the fall of the Weimar Republic and the 1933 Reichstag fire. However, it continued to be illegally distributed during the Nazi dictatorship.

Heartfield created some of his most famous montages for Die Rote Fahne. He publicly protested the murder of Liebknecht and Luxemburg at the direction of the hated Socialist Party, the SPD.

New works for Die rote Fahne will constantly be added.Please join our social networks for important updates.
