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.

Well done Charlotte. Another fine creation.

I have been busy today playing with one of those on-line photo book producers and I have got along way towards a book of the various completed boxes - six so far - using images posted by their creators. Rather surprisingly it seems to be going quite well (my computer skills not being the most advanced) and I am thinking it worth persevering with so if anyone else has the time and means to post their finished (or in-progress) boxes I will endeavour to include them and make it a proper job.

If I win the lottery within the next few weeks I will send everyone a copy but as it is it's too pricey though I might be able to stretch to a second copy for Cecil Touchon's archive (if he wants one) so that the project will be recorded somewhere; just to prove our existence!

My own box is in a dither because I have two possibles and can't make up my mind which to decide on!  As the saying goes; I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure . . .

P.S. Maria, I notice an interloper on your list of participants - no one from Italy on my list!

I am glad that everyone's box is turning out so different.

Dear Maria,  the Eternal Network works to its own heartbeat so there is no late . . .

Yet another interesting box - everyone is doing so well with these. 

I am trying to keep track of the photos of everyone's creations and am thinking of printing them out as an addition to my box; or stealing Jayne's idea and, if there are enough of them,  making a photo book (if I can find the readies) which would also go into the box.

Everyone has done such interesting work that I am sorry I shall probably not be here to take part in the 150th birthday celebrations - the Hannah Hoch Fan Club is sure to come up with something amazing then . . .

You all amaze me with this project.  Jayne I love your photomontages. Your book is a great way to preserve and keep the project alive for the future.  Carmen, thanks for your offer to exchange something.....I’m still getting out from under a backlog at the moment, so perhaps down the road.  Thank you.  I am with you all in spirit.

I tried to see Cecil Touchon’s collection - the Ontological Museum last February, but perhaps it wasn’t open yet.  I did go to a gallery that represents his work and did see a few of his large collages.  I do love his work.

Comment by Carmen Kennedy on November 7, 2019 at 12:12am

Jayne, the book you made is awesome! Thanks for the information. I just may make a book too. What a great way to document the project. Thanks again.
