This piece of German Dada art appeared on page 107 of the hugely successfully Kurt Tucholsky & John Heartfield collaboration Deutschland, Deutschland, über alles.
Published in 1929 by Neuer Deutscher Verlag, Tucholsky’s picture-survey was a devastating critique of the Weimar Republic.
Consider the perspectives and angles Heartfield manages to pull of in this display. His roots in German Dada art gave him the ability to mix elements into a seamless final montage. It’s clear why Heartfield was offered high-level positions at some of Germany’s most prestigious advertising agencies. He turned down these job offers believing they would restrict his artistic choices.
