Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Marianne Brandt is best known as a Bauhaus metal designer, and indeed it was in this context that she created beautiful and mass-reproducible objects to revolutionize modern interior spaces. Much less well known are the photomontages that constitute the critical complement to her metal works from the mid-1920s and early 1930s that allowed Brandt to focus an analytical gaze on contemporary society and politics. Drawing on the vast array of visual material made available by the Weimar Republic's burgeoning illustrated press, Brandt's photomontages relied upon the technologies of modern visual culture, not only to challenge pictorial conventions, but also to denounce the dangerous side of modern technology that had become so apparent in the First World War, and to image new roles for women in interwar society.

Riassunto: Germany's interwar years, the time of the Weimar Republic, brought the world Fritz Lang's Metropolis, Christopher Isherwood's gay underworld, the Bauhaus and a burgeoning illustrated press. When Marianne Brandt wasn't designing the beautiful, mass-reproducible metal home furnishings--including lamps and teapots still in production today--with which she and her compatriots revolutionized modern interior space, she was cutting and pasting newly abundant magazines and printed material into these witty, politically and artistically savvy photomontages. Their full range is investigated, analyzed and illustrated for the first time in Tempo Tempo! a striking portfolio and critical complement to Brandt's metalwork. She used the technology of the era's visual culture to denounce that same technology, to re-imagine the roles of women and to challenge pictorial conventions. As photomontage is rediscovered as a privileged site of Modernist artistic practice, Brandt will be considered one its luminaries.
L'autore: Elizabeth Otto is Assistant Professor of modern and contemporary art in the Visual Studies Department at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
