Raoul HAUSMANN. Dada im gewöhnlichen Leben (DADA Cino), 1920. Collage et photomontage sur papier, 31.7 x 22.5, collection particulière

Raoul Hausmann. The Art Critic 1919-20. Hausmann, a founder member of the Berlin Dada group, developed photomontage as a tool of satire and political protest. The fragment of a German banknote behind the critic’s neck suggests that he is controlled by capitalist forces. The words in the background are part of a poem poster made by Hausmann to be pasted on the walls of Berlin.
