Raoul hausmann, mechanischer kopf (der geist unserer zeit) (mechanical head [the spirit of our age]), c 1920 raoul hausmann, abcd (self-portrait), a photomontage from 1923–24 assemblages were three-dimensional variations of the collage – the assembly of everyday objects to produce meaningful or meaningless (relative to the war) pieces of work including war objects and trash. Artists in berlin included johannes baader, hannah hoch, george gzosz and raoul hausmann their art signified and encouraged revolution and independence, it comprised of a lot of collage, typography and photomontage techniques all with the purpose of breaking away from traditional canonized art. A pioneer of photomontage, whose images of women presaged the ideas of simone de beauvoir and second wave feminism half a century later, hoch was a pivotal figure in dada, the anti-art movement that outraged conventional opinion in the final years of world war one, working alongside iconic male artists such as george grosz, john heartfield and raoul hausmann.
Hoch initially became involved with dada around 1919, as a result of her relationship with fellow dadaist raoul hausmann it was through hausmann that hoch was introduced to several other influential artists of the dada movement, among them kurt schwitters , hans richter , and piet mondrian.
