Pay attention to form, color, materials, media, arrangement, etc. What is the overall effect? You may also go beyond the images in our book if you like. A few images that might be especially worthy of in-depth analysis are: –Hans Arp, “Collage Arranged According to the Laws of Chance” –Raoul Hausmann, “Mechanical Head (Spirit of the Age)” –Hannah Höch, “My Domestic Mottoes” –Kurt Schwitters, “Merzpicture 29A.

Ideas that you might consider here include: beauty, skill, representation, the intention of the artist, cultural traditions about art, the interpretation of the viewer, the cultural/social situation or content (e.g. an art gallery or museum), the art market (e.g. that someone may buy it), the sociopolitical context (war, injustice).
