Thanks very much for posting, I've gone through and added the date they were done, as well as any descriptive information into the Title fields. If anyone finds any more of his illustrations anywhere please feel free to edit them in!

My internet upload connection is terrible, so i can only post links, but here is the AAUE mag with Arntz's picture on the front.

RÄTE means council (as in workers council).

Incredible stuff really, these issues were produced in 1927 and 1928, just before Hitler's rise to power.

@ Steven

No problem. I'll upload additional images in the not too distant future, and be somewhat more descriptive, lol.

Die Proletarische Revolution was the paper of the so-called Frankfurt-Breslau current of the AAU-E which was pretty much influenced by Alfred Adler's Individual Psychology and its interpretation by Otto Rühle and Alice Rühle-Gerstel, they merged in 1931 with the remains of the AAUD to form the KAUD

Harrison - If you know of any specific illustrations that you think should be uploaded, feel free to link them. I didn't know if I should add the color versions, but I can always edit them in.

I think 'Dance of the Dead' is probably the most intense Arntz illustration that I've come across yet. Impressive.

If anyone finds 'Show' to be inappropriate, just edit it out. I found a couple of images depicting brothels in a pretty neutral manner, so if nobody objects I can add them as well.

Thanks for your work on this.

Interestingly, I walk past this gallery space in Shoreditch the other day, and the front window was covered in Gerd Arntz isotypes arranged to tell a story of autonomous working class struggle in the 20th century, which was pretty neat. It was closed so I don't know who did it, and can't find anything by googling it either…

Just to say, Harrison, you can make these changes yourself - just click the edit tab

thanks, but the problem is that the upload speed on the broadband in my uni halls is super crap, not even strong enough to attach things to emails or upload images. i think it's because someone on the network is sharing files on bittorrent

Sounds rad. If you think Arntz's isotypes would make a good addition to the archive, I can always upload them.
