The following is an except from Nancy’s Roth’s essay Heartfield and Modern Art. “In 1929, the Neuer Deutscher Verlag published Heartfield’s hugely successful satirical collaboration with Kurt Tucholsky, Deutschland, Deutschland, über alles, an irreverent picture-survey of the Weimar Republic. In this book, the photographs – selected from images taken by anonymous worker-photographers – function as snippets of the Republic itself, which Tucholsky’s text variously questions, mocks, compares, and contrasts, with devastating effect.”
The John Heartfield Exhibition Shop offers very high-quality reproductions of this classic John Heartfield photomontage. This complex collage is one of the amazing graphic design Heartfield created for his enormously successful collaboration with Kurt Tucholsky. A timeless visual reflection of the military industrial complex.
