Top 10 Collage Artists: Hannah Höch to Man Ray. From its roots in European Dadaism in the early years of the twentieth century, shadowing modernism and tracing its way through photography, collage is a medium as diverse as it is politically charged. Emerging as a reaction to the First World War, collage allowed artists to interact with existing materials – anything from newsprint and magazines to maps, tickets and propaganda and photographs – to rip them apart and then reassemble them, creating visually dynamic hybrids.

Especially for junior faculty members, walking to that fateful classroom can feel like a date with doom. I barely slept the night before being observed for the first time, racking my brain for ways to prevent myself from floundering on a student question, hatching escape plans from the prison-house of silence, and rehearsing ways to impress the observer without over-talking. Teaching observations are performances in a much more literal and direct sense than a normal day in the classroom. That's why it is important to be prepared. Of course, that only amounts to an implied criticism. Be assertive in scheduling the teaching observation. Know thy observer. Abstract Comics: The Blog: a couple by Mirtha Dermisache.
