The Age of Collage

at Feinkunst Krüger in Hamburg
Posted by Gestalten—03/2014

For those who couldn't visit our collage exhibition at Gestalten Space in Berlin, here's your second chance. The Age of Collage travels to Hamburg, where it will be on show in a slight variation—expanded with new exhibits by local collagists.

In collage, raw visual material is collected and then combined in such a way as to abstract the individual elements enough that the artist’s own vision becomes prominent. Because its references range from other artistic works and techniques to scientific images, pop culture, and erotica, this material and the resulting compositions reflect humanity’s collective visual memory and context. The work of the artists participating in The Age of Collage reveals the boundless possibilities and diversity of this timeless yet timely artistic technique.

Featured artists include: Ashkan Honarvar, Benbo George, Bene Rohlmann, Beni Bischof, Beth Hoeckel, Brandi Strickland, Brion Nuda Rosch, Bryan Olson, Charles Wilkin, Dennis Busch, Dominic McGill, Harold Diaz, James Gallagher, Jesper Fabricius, Jesse Draxler, John Stezaker, Joe Castro, John Vincent Aranda, Jordan Clark, Julia Busch, Katrien de Blauwer, Kerstin Stephan, Leigh Wells, Linder Sterling, Mario Wagner, Mario Zoots, Martin Bronsema, Matthieu Bourel, Max-O-Matic, Nicholas Lockyer, Nikolas Tantsoukes, Nils Karsten, Office Supplies Inc., Patrick Farzar, Philippe Jusforgues, Ruth van Beek, Sergei Sviatchenko, Till Gerhard, and Virginia Echeverria.

Vernissage: Saturday, March 8 at 8PM, RSVP on Facebook.

Workshop with Dennis and Julia Busch: Sunday, March 16, 11AM–5PM, 45€, please register via

The Age of Collage: Contemporary Collage in Modern Art, the book to coincide with the show, presents an even wider survey of outstanding current artwork and artists and takes an insightful behind-the-scenes look at those working with this interdisciplinary and cross-media approach.
