When one considers John Heartfield’s life and work, it becomes difficult to imagine how many artists, graphic designers, typographers, advertisers, filmmakers, writers, tattoo artists, along with so many others have found some form of inspiration in John Heartfield’s legacy. Some know his work and his techniques without knowing his name. The HIDDEN GENIUS
section of the Exhibition will continue to reveal why this courageous influential Dada and political artist does not have wider recognition and renown.
The John Heartfield Exhibition curator was fortunate enough to spend vacations with his grandfather in Europe. Visitors to the Exhibition are encouraged to ask the curator questions about his grandfather. What was Heartfield like as a person and as a grandfather? There are already answer answers in the Questions From Visitors
section of the Exhibition.
The Exhibition is evolving. Its goal is to be a powerful online museum to promote the work of artists with integrity and courage. In the REVEAL ART
section the Exhibition features work from collage artists such as Winston Smith, Thomas Young, and David King. They have the vision and courage to continue and expand on the groundbreaking work of John Heartfield. These artists use their talents to combat bigotry, ignorance, violence, and senseless war for profit.
The Exhibition is supported only by The John Heartfield Exhibition Shop
, contributions from visitors, and the curator. One hand can cast the vote that ends the dreams of a dictator. One hand can change history.
