(November 01 1889 - May 31 1978)
Collage artist Hannah Höch began her career in 1916 designing needlework patterns and fabric designs for the handicraft division of Ullstein Verlag, Germany’s largest publisher at the time. Her job gave her access to numerous copies of all the magazines and newspapers published by her employer. These served as the basis for many of her photomontages from 1916 to 1926.
