An exhibition of prints by the renowned photomontage artist John Heartfield. A pioneer of German agitprop and an early member of the Berlin Dada group, Heartfield is known as the inventor of political photomontage. 33 of Heartfield’s scathingly satirical artworks against war, fascism and the Third Reich will be on display.
