Montage and Modern Life: 1919-1942
by Matthew Teitelbaum
Publisher's Description
This book uncovers the roots of the complex relationship of photomontage to contemporary art and the mass media. Through juxtapositions and incongruous images, it shows how social and cultural themes were described, even created through photomontage, "a new way of seeing that is the hallmark of our time. Included are examples from advertising, documentary films, journals, architectural and exhibition designs, posters, and rare archival materials. Among the artists whose work is featured are Alfred Stieglitz, Walker Evans, Hannah Höch, Berenice Abbott, Edward Steichen, Imogen Cunningham, [and others]."--the publisher. Essays by Maud Lavin and others accompany the photographs.
