25 MayHEARTFIELDS ADRESS BOOKS
Address books are like an atlas of the relationship network of their owners. In addition to prominent friends and colleagues, they list the hairdresser and pharmacist, the nursery and the dog food shop on an equal footing and at eye level. This is also the case in the two address books handed down in John Heartfield's Archive of the Academy of the Arts.
Christine Fischer-Defoy has been dealing with address books for many years—for example by Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt and Paul Hindemith—and elicits the secrets of their owners from them.

Introduction by Michael Krejsa
