Enthusiasm related to the development of modern visual culture: cinema, popular illustrated press and photographic experiments under the sign of "das neue Sehen" had already been critically complemented in the 1920s in comments about the increasing "photoinflation". A specific response to this situation was the collection and processing by artists of ready-made images, from a collection of "found materials" (Album Hannah Höch), using them in the mode of ironic and mocking paraphrases, to politically engaged photomontage (John Heartfield).

Prof. Agnieszka Rejniak-Majewska - art historian and aesthetist; deals with the history of modern art, the history and theory of European avant-garde and their relations with the cultural processes of modernity. She is a lecturer at the University of Łódź, conducted research at the University of Chicago, at the Institute National d'histoire de l'art (INHA) in Paris.
