Artists in 10 Minutes: John Heartfield. One Man’s War Against Hitler
John Heartfield (1891-1968) is regarded a pioneer in the use of art as a political weapon. His photomontages satirized and exposed German Nazism.
This video was created to be the visual part of an installation in a public space and therefore features no audio. We designed the animation to be in the spirit of John Heartfield’s work, combining photo collages with powerful historic text material. The project is meant to provide a look into the artist’s work, biography and philosophy in less than 10 minutes.
