Hannah Höch (German: [hœç]; November 1, 1889 – May 31, 1978) was a German Dadaartist. She is best known for her work of the Weimar period, when she was one of the originators of photomontage.

Many Dadaists believed that the ‘reason’ and ‘logic’ of bourgeois capitalist society had led people into war. They expressed their rejection of that ideology in artistic expression that appeared to reject logic and embrace chaos and irrationality. For example, George Grosz later recalled that his Dadaist art was intended as a protest “against this world of mutual destruction.”

Photomontage is the process and the result of making a composite photograph by cutting, gluing, rearranging and overlapping two or more photographs into a new image. Sometimes the resulting composite image is photographed so that a final image may appear as a seamless photographic print. A similar method, although one that does not use film, is realized today through image-editing software. This latter technique is referred to by professionals as “compositing”, and in casual usage is often called “photoshopping“, due to a particular software often used.[1] A composite of related photographs to extend a view of a single scene or subject would not be labeled as a montage.

Project Goal:
Create a photomontage using @ least 3 different image sources & using overlap on all parts & one full page image as a background.

Target 1:
find your images, searching through magazines, newspapers, & books.
Target 2:
carefully cut out your desired portions of images (better to much than to little)
Target 3:
compose your new dadaist image from your source images.
