Grosz, Schlichter, Heartfield in Wieland Herzfelde made it possible for his brother, John Heartfield, to join the astonishingly vibrant Berlin art scene of the early twentieth century.

That, in turn, made it inevitable that John would meet the man who changed his life, the genius George Grosz. John Heartfield (born Helmut Herzfeld; –) was an artist and a pioneer in the use of art as a political weapon.

Some of his photomontages were anti-Nazi and anti-fascist statements. Heartfield also created book jackets for authors such as Upton Sinclair, as well as stage sets for such playwrights as Bertolt Brecht and Erwin Piscator.

Wieland Herzfelde is the editor; John Heartfield and George Grosz are responsible for the publishing house's artistic profile. They design the iconic book covers, advertising materials and all other Malik products Heartfield creates his first photomontage as a critical comment on recent history.

The publishing house also put out Der Gegner (–23; “The Opponent”), to which Herzfelde, Heartfield, and Grosz contributed. Grosz and Heartfield also coedited the Communist Party ’s satirical weekly magazine, Der Knüppel (“The Cudgel”), from to and designed posters and covers for the party’s daily paper, Die rote Fahne (“The Red Flag”).

Heartfield was well aware that his images still resonated in the Cold War. On display are a number of prints, originally created to expose fascist atrocities, that Heartfield recaptioned to warn of the barbarism of nuclear war.

Together with their close friend and fellow satirical artist George Grosz, Heartfield, and his brother Wieland Herzfelde (who added an "e" to the end of his last name as a poetic flourish) wasted no time in expressing their new radical-left outlook in an immediate and intelligible form in the newly founded journal the New Youth (Die Neue Jugend).

At this time, Heartfield became immersed in the print medium and. The book covers that Heartfield created for ‘The Good Soldier Švejk’ (–) demonstrate this proficiency well, as the novel was later adapted into a Piscator play, the set of which was directly influenced by Heartfield’s knowledge of Dadaist animation and film projection.
