10 Women in History. By December 31st.

Hannah Hoch (1889-1978), the 2nd woman in my "ten illustrations of women" series, was a German Dada artist, best known for her photomontage work, and being the only female among the Berlin Dadaists in the 1920's. Women and racial discrimination were often themes among her works, as well as political and social messages. The Dadaists were a self labeled anti-art movement which aimed at breaking the bourgeois painting convention typical at the time. She influenced further art styles including constructivism, surrealism, and futurism.
