Presents an outstanding review of the innovative oeuvre of noted German artist and political activist Heartfield (1891-1968), including early compositions for Dadaist publications, book jacket and poster designs, and many of the well-known anti-fascist photomontages he produced in the 1930s for the leftist periodical AIZ. Statements by the artist and many of his contemporaries are interspersed among excellent reproductions of some 180 works, while four essays discuss Heartfield's career in the context of avant-garde movements of the interwar period, the significance of his sojourn in Moscow in the early 1930s, the technical and aesthetic sophistication of his pioneering work in photomontage, and the theoretical and cultural implications of the montage form.
