Home » Glossary » Höch, Hannah

Hannah Höch (1889-1978) was a German artist who is best known for her pioneering work in photomontage. Höch was a key figure in the Berlin Dada movement in the early 20th century, and her work challenged traditional notions of art and representation.

Höch’s photomontages often combined images from popular culture, such as advertisements and magazines, with political and social commentary. Her work explored themes such as gender, identity, and power, and was characterized by a sense of playfulness and experimentation.

Höch was also known for her collages and paintings, which often incorporated elements of abstraction and surrealism. She was associated with a number of other artistic and intellectual movements of the time, including Constructivism and the Bauhaus school.

Höch’s work had a significant impact on modern and contemporary art, and has influenced a wide range of artistic movements, from Pop Art to Feminist Art. Her approach to art-making, which emphasized the importance of experimentation and individual expression, continues to be celebrated for its innovative and boundary-pushing spirit.
