MONTAGE AND MODERN LIFE, 1919-1942. Ed. by Matthew Teitelbaum. Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, 1992. Published in association with MIT Press, Cambridge. 208 pp. with 116 ills. 27 x 21 cm. LC 92-2572 ISBN 0262200910 In English.
An extensive survey of the development of photographic and cinematic montage techniques and their use in creating new visions of the industrialized world and modern society, this catalogue documents a wide range of works produced in Germany, the Soviet Union and the United States, including political posters, magazine and book illustrations, advertisements, documentary films and collages by anonymous designers as well as by such artists as Rodchenko, Heartfield, Lissitzky and Schwitters. An introductory text and four substantial essays discuss the political and commercial applications of photomontage in Germany between the wars, its use by Gustav Klucis and other artists to promote Soviet programs, the theories of film montage advanced by Eisenstein and Vertov, and the "graphic assemblages" produced in the United States under the sponsorship of New Deal government agencies.
