Background
Wolfgang Janisch is a German photo collage artist and peace activist. Born in Berlin in 1940, Janisch’s early years were defined by the turmoil of life in post-war occupied Berlin. Living in East Berlin, Janisch often found himself ideologically at odds with the Soviet authorities, and his views are evidenced in his large body of work. Janisch specialized in photo collage and created hundreds of posters that satirically expressed his critical view of the Soviet government.
