Otto Dix

30 06 2015

Otto Dix was a German artist, painter and print maker. His depictions of mechanized warfare and post-war Berlin continue to shape our impressions of the Great War and Weimar society. Along with George Grosz, Dix was one of the more important figures in New Objectivity. While Grosz delved into the shadows of modern society, Dix stared into the abyss.





Art 3

There is so much reverential almost religious solemnity attached to ‘The Arts’, especially ‘institutional arts’, I thought I might take a little of the wind out of their trousers. I created a series of works about the ordinary “Art” and his/hers daily life, shopping, walking the dog, waiting for a bus, etc.

Hanging out and around all night fast food places is very odd. Are these the first generations to socialize in the middle of the night with strangers.

John Heartfield

30 06 2015

Of the Berlin group, John Heartfield remains the best known and revered as a result of his single-minded devotion to anti-Nazi political activism. However, his early montages were collaborative efforts that resemble the work of all the other Dadaists. He and George Grosz experimented with cut-up pieces of newspaper and photos of their fellow artists, and produced many of the early designs for Dada posters and manifestos.

After this picture was taken I was  hauled off by fictional security police for taking photos in the mall.
