Upcoming Events

Thursday, September 20, 2007

The Wolfsonian-FIU invites you to a special members-only reception for Agitated Images: John Heartfield & German Photomontage, 1920-1938.

John Heartfield (born Helmut Herzfeld, 1891-1968) was a pioneer of modern photomontage and helped transform it into a powerful form of mass communication. His agitated images forecasted and reflected the chaos Germany experienced in the 1920s and '30s as it slipped toward social and political catastrophe.
Free to all members; guests $10. RSVP required: 305.535.2645 or rsvp@thewolf.fiu.edu.
