An attorney in Brooklyn, NY recently sent a link to a very interesting discussion concerning collages.
Since laywers have to go to collage for a long time, I figured he knew what he was talking about.
I went to collage in North Carolina, South Carolina, Arkansas, and even Holland (that’s The Netherlands for your purists).
Collages… my favorite way to learn:
“Collage has thus been deployed both as a mode of political resistance and as a protest against the commodity form, as an instrument of totalitarian propaganda and as a capitalist advertising tactic. It was this oscillation—a sweeping applicability to both the popular and the political, consumption and negation—that would usher in the late-twentieth-century turn to collage as a common and essential form of rethinking, repositioning, and reworking media.”
That’s from ArtForum, a very remarkable read for anyone artistically inclined.
