Prof John J Heartfield in conversation with Monica Bohm-Duchen
2 February 6:00 pm
Prof John J Heartfield, grandson of John Heartfield and curator of The John Heartfield Exhibition in conversation with art historian Monica Bohm-Duchen
The German antifascist artist John Heartfield, who fled to London (via Prague) in 1939 and lived in the UK until 1947, was a pacifist. He rose to number-five on the Gestapo’s Most Wanted List, working inside and in the shadow of the Third Reich. His only crime was his “art as a weapon” that used integrity and humour to reveal the fascist lies of dictators.
The John Heartfield Exhibition promotes modern artists influenced by the master of political collage.
