'Dada-Ernst', 1920-21, presumably named in tribute to the artist's main sources of inspiration and reference, is one of the witty and intricate montages in Cut With the Kitchen Knife: The Weimar Photomontages of Hannah Hoch by Maud Lavin (Yale pounds 27.50). It explores the uneasy position of the 'New Woman' in Weimar Germany, a constant theme in Hoch's work well analysed in Maud Lavin's detailed text.
