Powerful Art To Inspire Political Action Against Dictators

Facts are facts. Those who spout ‘alternate facts’ try to convince people that something very bad for them is actually very good them. The Heartfield Exhibition is dedicated to revealing lies that support the rise of fascist and authoritarian regimes.

“Words are flying out like endless rain…” John Lennon

An endless rain of words can’t seem to keep up with the latest outrage. Politicians without conscience and their supporters pivot away from ugly words and outright lies. But political art never pivots. A striking image remains in your mind like a great song. These lingering images are a powerful way to combat racism, xenophobia, climate change denial, and drumbeats for senseless wars.
