Spotlight - Hannah Hock


This month, Spotlight takes a look at one of the creators of photomontage, Dadaist artist Hannah Hock.

She was very aware that art had been dominated by men, and amongst the Dadaists who "paid lip-service to women's emancipation" she found they were reluctant to include a woman amonst their ranks, and so, "Through her art, Hoch quietly submitted female equality to the list of anti-bourgeois and radically leftist sentiments which Dada espoused." You can find articles about her HERE, HERE and HERE.

If you know of any great art websites or articles, why not share them here? Send your suggestions to samsketches@yahoo.co.uk - please note that this isn't for self-promotion.
