An early champion of feminist art and a celebrated member of the Berlin Dada movement, Hannah Höch’s collages commented on the social change and economic upheaval of Weimar Germany and Europe during the First and Second World Wars. Her contemporaries including George Grosz and Kurt Schwitters admired Höch’s unique satirical language that combined fashion images with symbols of industry. Over 100 works made between 1910-1970 display the depth and radical practice of this truly great collagist.
