Joan Pope as Hannah Höch
I've include Dada artist Hannah Höch in the Surrealist Erotica series. While not a Surrealist, she her primary medium, collage, became a significant technique for the Surrealists. Her creative methods and personal attitudes paved the way for the Surrealists to come. Her influence on me as an artist is obvious.

Preview from the Hannah Höch episode.
I used some of her works as the projection video and wore a short wig and 1910-1920s style clothes. Since her most famous work is called Cut with the Kitchen Knife Dada through the Beer-Belly of the Weimar Republic I went with including some shots of cutting up some images for collage. The view doesn't really see what I'm cutting in the episode but I was choosing images that I think Höch would have chosen. I plan on actually constructing some collages with those selections and including them in the book/box version of the Surrealist Erotica project.
