Myself, John Heartfield
My Grandfather, John Heartfield
My Sister, Catherine Jacobson
For years, I’ve dreamed of building a Internet
Archive to honor my
grandfather, Dada Photomonteur John Heartfield.
my hope that the John Heartfield, Dada Photomonteur
Official Internet Archive will grow into a vibrant
community dedicated to increasing the recognition of
renown of this courageous and ground-breaking artist.
John Heartfield is
consistently considered by art historians to be among
the twelve most influential artists of the twentieth
While living in Berlin, Heartfield
devoted his art, risked his life, and sacrificed his
health to ceaselessly mock and vilify Hitler, The Third
Reich, fascism, and everything the Nazis represented.
In addition to an ever-growing catalog of his art, I'll share personal photos of the artist, his family, and his contemporaries. I'll include personal writings and media statements and reviews. I'll also share my own memories of Johnny, as he was known by family and friends.
Please be patient as I add to each of its sections.
For the moment, you can:
Examine THE MOMA CATALOG of his 1993 MOMA Exhibition in New York. I've added personal notes and photos.
