Über die Veranstaltung
Max Ernst defined collage as “the systematic exploitation of the accidentally or artificially provoked encounter of two or more foreign realities on a seemingly incongruous level – and the spark of poetry that leaps across the gap as these two realities are brought together.”That spark of poetry is, ultimately, what we want to explore in this workshop.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
We will begin with a review of the history of collage, from the avant garde movements to the collage scene nowadays, ending in Germany and Berlin. We will understand better the importance of collage in the art movements of the XX Century, we will analyse the different perspectives of the collage language and we will achieve lots of references.After that, the rest of the workshop will be dedicated to make collages from diverse assumptions, exploring different ways of creating and expressing. We will make collective analysis of the works, we will be in a constant dialogue about concept, composition, contrast, color, texture...
The main thing is to have fun, to learn, to create a space for knowledge, exchange and debate.This is a workshop to dive deep into de world of collage.
Everyone interested in collage, art, visual communication. To beginners and to established artists. The more variety we have the more we will all learn.
