Kurt Tucholsky Cover
POST A COMMENT
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."
