For Hannah Hoch

This image is an homage to German Dada artist Hannah Hoch.  She was the lone woman in the Dada Berlin Group. Her feminist work critiques the rise of the mass culture beauty industry that was booming in the early to mid 20th Century.  Much of my own collage work began through cutting up fashion magazines in my frustration towards the fashion industry’s commodification of women.   I like to think of this as a utopian vision where feminism and dada has succeeded in dismantling the unhealthy modern standards of the bourgeois and a celebratory dance party has commenced. 2011.
