Hannah Hoch is an artist who highly supports women’s right of being equal with men. She spreads positive feminism through the work of art and raising awareness to the world (especially Germany) that women are on the same level as men when it comes to worldly affairs.

Hannah Hoch || Das Schone Madchen/The Beautiful Girl

Art piece: The Beautiful Girl

I find this piece of artwork to be very appealing and mesmerizing as it depicts an image of women being surrounded by technology and car parts. This shows the power and control women have with technical issues regardless of identity or gender. The colors used has a very warm tone and an old ragged texture. However, the artist has created the main attraction of the  piece to be the light bulb on the woman’s head, shining very brightly and looking new. This shows that even in the olden days, women are already intelligent in mechanical work and are shining as bright as ever up till today.


Hannah Hoch || High Finance (1923)

Art piece: High Finance

Hannah Hoch has a similar style for each of her work as most of them are of political messages that she was trying to spread across.  In this piece,  there’s an image of 2 men, whose heads are bigger than their body.  From this, it feels like their ego/pride in their head are bigger and they crave for power.  A shotgun can also been seen in the background which shows a sign of war and violence.  In my opinion, I feel that this piece shows that power were highly yearned for in the past and are gained through violence and killing.
