Hannah Hoch

Yesterday afternoon, we visited the Johnson Museum at Cornell and saw a few wonderful shows--one on drawing (with Jennifer Bartlett's work as part of the group); one a photography show documenting a location over the course of about 5 years in all the seasons juxtaposing agri-junk, nature and the city; and the last a show on Dada work featuring the collection of a Cornell alumni. There were several new artists that were inspiring and interesting and would like to pass them on to you. The first is Hannah Hoch. From my web dive, here are some good overviews on who she was:

>>Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
>>The Adam Art Gallery, New Zealand

>>Slate Magazine's review of the 1997 show
"The Photomontages of Hannah Hoch"

And the book:
The Photomontages of Hannah Höch (Hardcover)
by Peter Boswell, Maria Makela, Carolyn Lanchner, Hannah Hoch

Wonderful work. Jarring relationships. Startling images. Check em out.
