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.
This example of photomontage works well because it is visually interesting and has a lot of contrast. The photo of the woman is in black and white while the photo of the plant is shown in color this contrast makes the image stand out more.
