The development of photomontage techniques during the early 1920s and 1930s in the United States, Germany, and the 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, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Imogen Cunningham, Werner Graef, Charles Sheeler, John Heartfield, Marianne Brandt, El Lissitzky, and Kurt Schwitters.
