Dadaïst collages

Raoul Hausmann, Tatlin zu hause (Tatlin’s house)

hhoch
Hannah Höch, Da Dandy
Hannah was the only woman in the Dadaïst movement and even though her colleagues claimed to be emancipated they didn’t think of her as a serious artist. However, she took revenge when she had the most impressing artwork at the first international dada convention.

hhoch2
Hannah Höch, Cut with the Dada Kitchen Knife through the Last Weimar Beer-Belly Cultural Epoch in Germany

heartfield
John Heartfield, cover of ‘Dada 3′ (magazine)

schwitters
Kurt Schwitters, i-zeichnung
This is only one piece out of the ‘i-zeichung’ series. The i stands for dotting the i in art. Kurt searched through the garbage of a printing company and selected what he liked. With this he is trying to tell us that an artist’s job is to recognise rhythm and expression in a part of nature.
