Hannah Höch (fan club)

Some mail artists add a stamp print to their mail art, saying 'Hannah Hoch Fan Club'.

Until I received these stamp prints I never had heard of this artist, who was born 1st of November 1889. She has been a collage / photomontage pioneer. She was part of the Dada movement and also became involved in the De Stijl art movement. 

For anyone who has a Hannah Höch Fan Club Stamp (and interested others, I haven't one), this group can be the place to share your thoughts and mail art, tributing to and/or inspired by Hannah Höch.

I am envious of your industry - I hope the post is kinder to yours than to mine.  I am still mythering!

I have been busy with the glue brush and making some headway;  The three that have been lost are replaced and four more well under way.  With a bit of luck I will be back at the post early next week.

Nothing else has been done here.  I haven't paid my mail any heed so I expect there are some mighty fine surprises waiting for me.  Must work first; work, work, work . . .

OK... I have mailed out packets to everyone that Mary Anne mentioned in the comment before this. Am hoping that they all land safely on or before November 1. I , like Mary Anne, will be happy to exchange HHBD lovelies with anyone who mails a lovely to me. I am working on some projects and will send future exchanges when I can. This was so much fun and I am looking forward to seeing all the “boxes” and their content on November 1. Oh, and Michael, love the collages! Look for this sticker in the mail.

Carmen Kennedy. USA. /
Mary Anne. United Kingdom.
Cascadia Artpost. USA.
Charlotte Geister. Germany. /

Hello to the H. Höchs birthday party!

Today I received a card from Cascadia art post and  a real fat birthday envelope from Visual Mom, that is really great with a lot of fine things! Specially the pin is wonderful! I am still working, but will finish everything in the next week! So thanks Mom and Cascadia art post!

hello everyone, will we have a list of addresses of confirmed people? in the meanwhile, I know Mary Anne was looking for The Photomontages of HH and I found a PDF version at MOMA documents...

Thanks for nice welcome Mary Anne. A couple of HH inspired collages from the archive -

Mary Anne, love Eric's creation....I might do a very simplified version for the top of my birthday box. Taking the easy way out on that. Have finished six collages plus some surprises. Hope to have it all done by week's end so that I may mail in time for everyone to receive by November 1. Really having fun with this project as my other mail art is piling up. Ha!

Hi Michael.  Welcome to the chop shop.  Now we will be having some fun . . .

I found this creation, by Eric Bensidon, on my travels; A little encouragement for all the Birthday Boxers . . .

Thankyou, Mary Anne - I gave Megan a list of addresses for the participants we have so far, but hopefully she'll get in this group before Nov. 1st so she can post a photo of her Hannah Hoch Birthday Box.
