Hannah Höch Album Hannah Höch (*1889 Gotha - 1978 Berlin). From 1912 to 1915 she studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg and the Staatliche Lehranstalt des Kunstgewerbemuseums Berlin. There she met and became friends with Raoul Hausmann. She was banned from exhibition activity in Germany from 1933 to 1945. Hannah Höch was admitted to membership in the Akademie der Künste, Berlin, in 1965. Hannah Höch is an important representative of the Berlin Dada movement and an artist about whom there is still much to discover. Höch’s collector’s album, her most personal, wonderfully poetic work, presumably dates back to 1933. Although only a few pages of the album have been published to date, it contains more than 400 photographs from magazines on such themes as nature, technology, sports, dance, the new woman, film, and ethnology. A unique work within Höch’s oeuvre, it raises a number of interesting questions. Was it used as a collection of motifs for collages and photo-montages? Was it a kind of modern sketchbook? Could it have been a first step toward Conceptual Art? A real find for all collectors of exclusive artists’ books who enjoy the pleasure of discovery. Hannah Höch’s album is also available in the original format—a deluxe edition in a slipcase that can surely be regarded as a small, precious work of art in its own right. Collector's Editions will be shipped upon receipt of payment (including postage and handling) or credit card authorization.
