The Official John Heartfield Exhibition

Official John Heartfield Exhibition      John Heartfield Exhibition Curator

My grandfather was John Heartfield, the brilliant German Dada and Political Artist. During the Second World War, he rose to number five on the Gestapo's Most Wanted List for his use of his "art as a weapon" against Adolf Hitler, fascism, bigotry, ignorance, and war.

I’m the creator and curator of The Official John Heartfield Exhibition & Archive.

Throughout the Weimar Republic and the reign of Hitler’s Third Reich, my grandfather created world famous political montages that attacked the insanity of The Nazi Party. He created these works of arts while living in Berlin.

David King of the Tate Modern London wrote John Heartfield was "the greatest political artist and graphic designer of the twentieth century.

John Heartfield was a founder of modern photomontage. He was a member of Berlin Club Dada. He invented the 3-D wrap-around book dust jacket. He revolutionized typography. He was an influential theatrical production designer for playwrights such as Bertolt Brecht and Erwin Piscator.

The Official John Heartfield Exhibition & Archive is the best online source to learn about my grandfather's art and view is groundbreaking art. The Exhibition reveals his fascinating life in photos, images, words, and video. It features never-before-published material from The John J Heartfield Collection, my personal collection of John Heartfield material of art, photos, letters, postcards, videos, and more.

The Exhibition celebrates Heartfield's astonishing life and work. You can support powerful political art. Help the The John Heartfield Exhibition to grow into an online museum for progressive artists to show and distribute their work.
