ANTI-WAR ART and ARTISTS
This page focusses on those artists and their works that at least someone publicly has labelled or referred to as being anti-war. All periods and areas are covered.
Helmut Herzfeld changed his name to John Heartfield as a deliberate protest when he heard about the anti-British WWI German slogan "Gotte Straffe England" [God punish England].
He was inspired in part by front-line German soldiers evading censors by clipping bits of snapshots and photos sent with their letters home to compose his own photomontages. An excellent introduction and 17 images make this a very appealing site!
An interesting look at a prolific artist who produced some very interesting politically/socially questioning images during the 1950's and 1960's regarding American self-concepts.
Los Angeles street broadsides and ephemera reflecting political protest including anti-nuclear and anti-war sentiments focussed on the early and mid-1980's.
