For a short time in 1939 Hannah Hoch concentrates on gathering images in scrapbook albums (100+), and creates an ‘encyclopedia of images’. While her collages combine pictures from magazines and papers, the album is a file with juxtapositions of whole images. It is found after the artist’s death, and publishes in 2004/2007.


Magazine paper and newspaper on paper.
