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.

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.

The more I look at it and think about it, I think it is Hannah. Max Ernst( or another Dadaist ) may have been the bridge between them. Also, that hairstyle is Exclusively Hannah's.  As for the elongation of the face, that is due to the shadows in the Photo. It makes me happy to think that this is a photo of Hannah that was not widely publicised. (Possibly /probibly from Leonora Carringtons private photo album.)

* shape, I mean :-) 

This is the complete picture:

I am not sure either. I think the length of the faces might be similar, as does the hair, but I see differences in the dhape of the mouth.

This collage comes from the book 'Lebensbild', subtitle 'a collaged autobiography'. We can spot differences and similarities. Anyhow, an interesting question, Jufith, which causes us (at least me) to train / improve observation :-)

Hey Judi, I don't think that it is Hannahs face, because it is too long. She had a rather round face when you look at her from the front.Your collage photo reminds me of a sequence of the surrealistic film " the andalusian dog" by Luis Bunuel. there is a scene where an eye is clipped with a razor blade from nearby. Dali experimented with different possibilities to get surrealistic images. Thanks again for your collage card! Hugs Charlotte

What do you think? Is the figure in the center of this collage Hannah? I found the photo as part of an artical about Leonora Carrington.  In the texts artical Hannah was not mentioned. Given that both delt with gender issues and dada/surealistic art style, I kinda think it must be Hannah. ♡♤♡♢♧♡
