Hannah Höch was a German Dada artist. As the sole female member of the German Dada group (George Grosz, Raoul Hausmann, Johannes Bader, Richard Huelsenbeck and John Heartfield), Höch was an early pioneer of photomontage, the format she utilized to voice her criticisms of the Weimar German Government and to champion women’s rights.

Following the rise of the Nazi regime, Höch’s work lost acclaim and during the war she retreated to obscurity.
