Paper Based Art For your inspiration Origami (since the 6th century Japan) Hannah Hoch (1889-1978) pioneer of photocollage How does her manipulation of these human forms alter or compromise their basic human traits? Do they seem more or less human to you? RaoulHausmann (1886-1971) Hausmann and Hoch were Berlin Dada-ists, working from 1918, when the first dada spore left Zurich and landed in Berlin, until the end of their lives. Photo collage as a cultural phenomenon was well established – people would manipulate family & magazine images for amusement. These artists are credited with inventing it as a serious form of art and political commentary. As in the manifestos, dada is an anti-art form, so the intention is to break up the status quo. Hausmann The Art Critic. 1920 What’s he think about art critics? Note the German banknote at his neck and rather sharp pencil below. What’s it mean? Hausmann Tatlin at Home, 1920 This is an homage to Vladimir Tatlin, a Russian painter who worked during the Russian revolution (1917) and was in tune with Futurism, laid a good groundwork for abstract art. Tatlin’s head is an automobile steering wheel and drive shaft, conferring on him a status of semi-human, semi-machine. Contemporary Artists
