The development of photomontage techniques during the early 1920s and 1930s in the US, Germany and Soviet Union had a profound influence on contemporary art and mass media. "Montage and Modern Life" uncovers the roots of this complex relationship. Through unexpected juxtapositions and discontinuous images and through some of the most sophisticated and least cultivated examples of montage, it demonstrates the way a common set of social and cultural themes was broadly articulated, culminating in a new way of seeing that is the hallmark of our time. Included are examples drawn from photographs, advertising, documentary films, journals, architectural and exhibition designs, posters and rare archival materials. Among the artists whose work is featured are: Alfred Stiegliz, Walker Evans, Hannah Hoech, Bernice Abbott, Edward Steichen, Alexander Rodchenko, Imogen Cunningham, August Sander, Werner Graef, Charles Sheeler, John Heartfield, Marianne Brandt, El Lissitzky and Kurt Schwitters. The essays in the book are written by Maud Lavin, Annette Michelson, Christopher Phillips, Sally Stein and Margarita Tupitsyn.
