Hannah Hoch

This is the first major exhibition in Britain of the work by Hannah Hoch, an influential artist in the radical Dada movement in 1920s Germany.

Hoch pioneered the new technique of photomontage. 

She cut and pasted images into satirical collages to question conventional methods of art and representation—and the stereotypes of gender and race that they uphold.

Hannah Hoch - 15 January-23 March, Whitechapel Gallery, London E1 7QX, £10/£8

Brand New Ancients

Performance poet and rapper Kate Tempest is taking her award winning show Brand New Ancients on tour.

Borrowing themes from classical Greek mythology, she explores the pressures that life puts on ordinary people—and the complex effects they can have.

Despite sometimes harrowing themes of alienation, violence and women’s oppression, Tempest tells her stories with a humour and sympathy that finds hope in human solidarity.
