---Walter Benjamin recognized the importance of Dada when he wrote in 'The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction' that when authenticity ceases to be an important part of making art, "the total function of art is reversed. Instead of being based on ritual it begins to be based on another practice, politics." ---Image:http://www.johnvalentino.com/Teaching/Art190/Projects/190Proj2/Dada.html

Hannah Hoch, Liebe (1931) Hoch's photomontage brings composition, colour, and concept into perfect alignment. She was clearly one of the most talented, if not THE most talented collagist of her time. You have to wonder if her gender plays a part in her relative invisibility in the Dadaist annals...
