Hannah Höch

The Whitechapel Gallery in London's East End has opened the first major UK retrospective of German artist Hannah Höch, who was a member of the Dada movement in Berlin in the 1920s and a pioneer of collage. The show brings together more than 100 of her collages, woodcuts, watercolours and photomontages from international collections. Shown is her Für ein Fest gemacht (1936). Her saving grace was her sense of humour. The Nazis were not amused; they gave her work the raspberry. Admission costs £8.95 for adults or £6.95 for silver surfers (CLICK).
