Culture Club Kino presents:
The collage life, from Hannah Höch to punk rock
Photomontage is one of the most important ideas in the history of modern art. But unlike, say, cubism, or post-painterly abstraction, you’ve probably had a go at it at some point in your life, like that time you were bored at work in 2009, and decided to photoshop Nicholas Cage’s face onto something that is not Nicholas Cage. This gives us a clue as to how Photomontage began, as folk art for a mass-media age. Learn how the technique was pioneered in Germany in 1918 by artists like Hannah Höch, and used throughout the 20th century by political agitators, punk bands, pop artists, TV comedians and other neo-Dadaists to make fun of people and things that badly needed making fun of. Discover how the simple act of cutting and pasting offers a way of criticising not just the mass media and its products, but the construction of everyday life itself. And meet Linder Sterling, whose radical magazine-splicings of the late 70s not only invented the look of punk rock, but also offer us a clue as to how we can transcend media stereotypes and sexist cliches, and re-arrange ourselves for the future.
