Collage work was a branch of contemporary art techniques that came from Dadaism, in which Tristan Tzara would say it's the most revolutionary development since painting and photography. How's modern collage going? We look into the works of modern collage artists.
Glued, cut, pasted, scratched, folded, tore, mounted, assembled, decomposed -- there are many ways to create a collage. Among artists, photographs are a favorite. .One would even say it's recycling photographic result into a new artwork. What does a fragmented, creative mess mean for the audience's perception? What does a piece of a picture or material reflect? These are one of the few questions to be answered in the works of Astrid Busch, Vincent Delbrouck Herbert Hofer, Paul Albert Leitner, Lilly Lulay, Anna Vogel, Nicolas Rupcich, and Sinta Werner.
