Event description
Political photomontage artist Peter Kennard discusses his new book Visual Dissent, and the influence of John Heartfield upon his work

About this Event

Peter Kennard has spent 50 years creating uncompromising and hard-hitting protest art, such as the iconic reworking of Constable’s Haywain with cruise missiles.

Join us on 14 November when Kennard will be discussing his new book, Visual Dissent, which chronicles his work over the last five decades. From photo-based paintings against the Vietnam war to photomontages projected on Marble Arch for Extinction Rebellion, Kennard will show ways that dissenting art can be an integral arm of socio-political struggle and protest.

Kennard will begin by looking at Heartfield and how he transformed his work from Dada explosive fragmentation into a popular form of photomontage to fight fascism for a general audience. Work by Hannah Hoch and Rodchenko will also be discussed.

This event is part of Four Corner's current exhibition, HEARTFIELD: ONE MAN'S WAR, revisiting the father of photomontage, John Heartfield.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England & the Barry Amiel & Norman Melburn Trust
