CUTTING WITH DADA KITCHEN KNIFE THE LAST WEIMAR AND THE CULTURAL ERA IN GERMANY FATTENED WITH BEER
Is art a kind of childish game? Hanna Höch produced an artistic photomontage. She concentrated on new artistic methods by female artists used in Germany during and shortly after WWI. As the background, there is a socio-mental situation in Germany, which shaped the perception of art by a woman outside traditionalistic, bourgeois environment. Hannah Höch belonged to the Dadaist group in Berlin. The group included the whole array of artists who later gained recognition. Grzych described the Dadaist movement in the context of their origin and philosophy as well as their decline in the forthcoming years. Also, she described the rise of the trends which later destroyed freedom and resulted in national socialism. Is the dying of carefree movements associated with stiffening and brutalization of thinking about politics? The answer to this question is left to the reader, as well as the commentary to that period in art history.
