Motivated by the works of László Moholy-Nagy, Anneliese Hager, poet and photographer, experimented with photogram techniques as from the mid 1930s. After the end of World War II, she married her second husband, the painter Karl Otto Götz, and they both became members of the artist group CoBrA in 1948. The poetic appearance of her photograms, open for association, served among other things, as illustrations for her poems.
