After Dada

Marta Hegemann and the Cologne avant-garde

Dorothy Rowe

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Re-writes histories of the Cologne avant-garde 'after Dada' in gendered terms focusing on women artists and networks of exchange and artistic collaboration
  • Includes brand new research on the pivotal role of Marta Hegemann within Gruppe Stupid and Angelika Fick Hoerle within Cologne Dada
  • Presents an overview and a synthesis of a vibrant artistic scene that until now has rarely been brought to the attention of an English language audience
  • Sheds new light on well known cultural figures from the era: August Sander, Max Ernst, Anton Räderscheidt, Heinrich Hoerle, Hannes Flach, Kurt Schwitters and others
  • Re-examines and re-situates August Sander's photographic project People of the Twentieth Century within the context of the cultural avant-garde in Cologne and the networks of artistic activity in which he was pivotal
  • Explores the interactions between avant-garde painting and the development of photography in 1920s and 1930s Germany
