Hannah Höch: Life Portrait, A Collaged Autobiography

"One is always in a rush, driven by current events," Hannah Höch wrote in 1951. "By one's own drive to create, that vegetated for so long, suppressed, and now is impossible to control." Featured image is reproduced from Hannah Höch: Life Portrait, The Green Box's wonderful new book presenting 38 details of Höch's final large-scale collage. At top, center, this detail appropriates a portion of a 1930 photomontage of "a reverse rhinoceros that looks like a deformed elephant" which Höch created to explore "the oppressive political situation with the increasing threat of the Nazis. Do they attack the seal, or does the seal represent a positive counterpart?"
