Collage Stories

By snurfson / Posted on 19 January 2011

Collage has a relatively short, but incredibly rich history. Dating back to the early 1900s, it first emerged in the work of artists such as Picasso, Braque and, later, the Constructivists and has since proliferated through figures like Kurt Schwitters, Max Ernst and the Surrealists, branching out into a myriad of fine art practice that encompasses assemblage, montage and d├ęcollage. The popularity of collage is on the increase again, partly as a result of such postmodernist concerns as pluralism, multiplicity and hybridity. This art form is also flourishing in other areas, ranging from the traditional `cut and paste’ method through to digital and installation collage.

    Besides the obvious link here between this posting and the Cinema Collage that I’m involved with (duh!), this is an excellent topic to publish and a quite current one indeed.

    Yes we believe in the assemblage of different forms and Cinema Collage does too. We will be posting more on that soon.
