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. Heartfield’s life and work make it clear fascism destroys freedom. Fascists will always want to suppress with violence facts and opinions that don’t conform to their perverted ideology.
These videos tell John Heartfield’s story in images, words, and music, hoping voters will find in them one more reason to reject a political tactic that always ends in devastation for all.
