Heartfield Antifascist Art Videos

Dada & Antifascist Artist John Heartfield

Antifascist Art Videos

The exhibition’s antifascist art videos make it clear that John Heartfield was one of history’s most courageous and prolific artists. Many who work in the field of collage consider Heartfield’s work with Dada, graphic design, and typography as their most important influence. That material is in these videos, but it was his political art against the propaganda machine of fascism and Nazi Germany that made him famous.

The curator’s father, Tom George Heartfield, the only son of the Dada artist John Heartfield, cherished everything that pertained to his father. The Heartfield Exhibition owes a great debt to Tom Heartfield. Tom Heartfield’s legacy forms the bulk of the exhibition curator’s collection of Heartfield videos and historical material such as photos, postcards, documents, and writings.

Thanks to John Heartfield’s devoted son, The Official John Heartfield Exhibition offers a growing collection of never-before-published Heartfield videos of the courageous anti-fascist artist in his later years. The Heartfield Exhibition also features video documentaries and features.

More videos will be available here and on the John Heartfield Exhibition YouTube Channel. Please Join Our Mailing List for updates.
