DescriptionDIE DREHSCHEIBE. Inviation. 1927. 53/4>x81/2> inches, 15x22 cm. H. Osterwald, Hannover. Condition A. Folded as issued. Paper. Hannover in the 1920s had a prominent place in Germany's Avant Garde artistic development, as it was home to Kurt Schwitters, who created his Merz concept there and founded Merz Werbezentrale, a design and advertising company. Students at the Hannover School of Decorative Arts used some of the modernist design concepts that were swirling around them to help promote their charity ball, The Turntable. This invitation is the work of two students, each having designed one side. The cubist and dadaist influenced design is very similar to Hannah Höch's image for the "Fruhlings-Mess der Kunstgewerbe Gruppe," in Berlin (see Avant Garde p. 122).
