That? That’s the Times: They Scream for Satire


Heartfield’s stunning graphic designs complemented Tucholsky’s satiric masterpiece perfectly. The book became an instant success in the Weimar Republic. Heartfield’s revolutionary graphics caught the eye of some of the largest advertising agencies in Berlin. He was offered high-level position. He turned them all down.
John Heartfield wanted to be a successful artist since he was a very young man. His graphic designs for Malik Verlag publishing made his reputation. But he desire something more than applause from critics and offers from agencies. He wanted to use his art “as a weapon” against ignorance and injustice. It was well known that Heartfield felt injustice was a personal attack against him.
