And Yet it Moves!

Heartfield was interred in camps at Lutton, Huyton, and York. In 1941 he was released. Eventually he took up a professorship of graphic arts and then was allowed to return to Germany after the war in 1948. Heartfield used photography as a weapon, recognizing that often empty and rediculious nature of political symbolic systems can be used as a structural weapon against them. By anchoring his photomontages with satirical captions and by juxtaposing Nazi imagery with more a more 'sane' visual programme, Heartfield creates a world with his photomontages of pure art and pure activism. Captions have been included where possible.
