Hannah Höch (fan club)


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.

Mary Anne...

I like the idea to think of me like Ariadne...

To be honest I had a grandmother from Krete and a grandfather from Naxos...!!!

As I and my partner in life, we both like wine, now I see a relationship with Dionysos too...

You are amazing!!!

Never thought about the connection...!

Another glimpse of the work in progress - I am planning a little photo book of images of the finished boxes.  This is to be the title page . . .

inside empty and . . .

Greetings Birthday Boxers.

I am still beavering away.  Made a start (at last) on prettifying my box and sorting out the contents.

I am still planning on mailing out a list of participants though it may not get done until after Christmas. 

This will have a complete list of everyone who 'signed up' to the project plus the best list I can manage of the unofficial participants; those who sent things to just one or two of the 'officials' without becoming too involved.  They deserve a credit I think.  So far I have four names there.  If anyone else has some unofficial contributors I would be happy to add them to the list (just for the sake of completeness).

Some people have hinted that they may continue to add to their box, which is good news for the promotion of Hannah's work, but I am not sure how that affects the documentation.  Perhaps we have reached the point where everyone will take the project off into their own domains?  I am in uncharted waters.

I am also still collating images of the finished (or near finished) boxes.  Any new pictures would be very useful . . .

I thought this would all be over early November but it looks as though our collective imagination has been given a good shove and it looks like I will still be shuffling about well into next year.

I shall have to think of you as Ariadne from now on . . .

Dear Mary Anne, I'm just thinking...

My plans for June 2020 till September 2021 is to move to the Island of Naxos...Maybe I will stay there for the rest of my life, maybe not...I do not know what are the possibilities to make a mail art exhibition there...

Yesterday I went to the cinema to see the great Corean movie "Parasite".

At the entrance of the cinema there was an instalation on the ceiling with trestles and I thought it would be a nice idea to hang Hannah's presents there...

I started a conversation with the manager about mail art and the project and he was interested, planing the event on February or March 2020...

I know it sounds too much in a hurry but we just have some thoughts...

We will talk again about it...nothing is sure...Ι just wanted to share my thoughts with the Club...

Waiting for thoughts and advices

Dear Maria, the Birthday box was done in such a wild rush - it would have been even better if we had given ourselves more time to send out invitations, spread the word, drum up enthusiasm in the furthest corners of the Eternal Network . . . 

An exhibition would be a great way to promote Hannah's work but it could keep until 2021 if you wanted a year off . . .

Hello dear Hannahers!

This week I received works from Horvath Piroska from Austria and Susan Gold from US...

It is amazing how beautiful my box turns...

I started thinking for an exhibition...

I promised to myshelf I will not organize an exhibition next year (as every year...) but I think that it is so interesting to introduse Hannah's work to Greek audience and mail art too... (once again)

Thanks to Catherine Bennett I am involved to this project and I see that it deserve my best...

We will see...

Love & peace & mail art

Rosalie - Thanks for posting the link to the video, "The Strange Beings from Hannah HÖch’s Ethnographic Museum”. I'd just seen one from that series in an exhibition (in Scotland), stood talking about it with another visitor, so hearing all this background and thoughtful discussion was 101% interesting for me.
