John Heartfield, The Hand Has 5 Fingers / With 5 You Seize the Enemy! / Vote List 5 / Communist Party! 1928

Four Corners Gallery, London

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.

This set of anti-Nazi photomontages was recently rediscovered in its original crumbling box in Liverpool John Moores University Library Archives. The exhibition will also display material produced by Heartfield during his time as a refugee in England between 1938 and 1950.
