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.

As Cascadia Artpost already suggested, there are great books which show the work, and sometimes personal photos, of Hannah Höch.I thought to start this blog post so that all of you/us can share the…Continue

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.

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.

Oh - and for those in the U.S. - Shutterfly.com offers a free 6x6 soft covered photo book every month. You only pay $7.99 for shipping (cause you know, nothings really free - haha). I made a photo book from all the different photomontage pieces I made, plus photos of my HH box. I’m going to keep the book inside the birthday box.

Here are photos of the book cover and some of the book pages...

Just back from the post office, and Rosalie Gancie - your mail arrived. Thanks so much. I will write a blog post about the HH happenings once I get more gifts for my box. I must say, I feel like a real cheapskate - a number of you have sent envelopes filled  with lots of great artwork! Such talent we have in the group! I read the recent comment from Carmen, and I also like the idea that the project is “living.” Mary Anne, when I opened Willie’s mail yesterday I was thinking the same thing - for a person who didn’t want to participate, Willie ACTUALLY participated by sending our own mail back, along with some other goodies. 

Comment by Mary Anne on November 6, 2019 at 11:08pm

Hi Rosalie, I think you might have just answered a question I have been mulling over all evening.  Willie didn't want to be included in the project (fair enough) and said that he would return anything that had been posted (beyond the call of duty I think) but if he sends things back he is part of the project (in an unusual and very interesting way) and should be included; shouldn't he?  He has made a contribution surely?  I am thinking he maybe just doesn't want bothering with all sorts of un-necessary stuff from strangers - we all of us only have so much time and money to spend - so I have worked out a way of including him, in the documentation I am planning; that I hope will give him some credit without offending him.  Its only a modest list in any case but I am very keen to buck the trend of only having on-line documentation and am determined to send out something.

There is a big drawback to my little envelope book;  now I am desperately waiting for more mail just so I can make use of the envelopes!  The madness of my mail art world . . .
