After touring Europe (Madrid, Rotterdam and, again, Madrid) and Latin America (Lima, Quito, San José de Costa Rica), the most vibrant collage exhibition worldwide arrives to Berlin with ten days entirely dedicated to collage. An exhibition, workshops and artist talks will bring some of the most renowned collage artists around to a city where collage seems a natural way of expression.
The exhibition, at tête in Prenzlauer Berg is curated by Weird´s head curators Rubén B and Max-o-matic. The selection of artists unite some of Weird´s classic provocateurs with some German based collage artists who will be exhibiting for the first time with Weird. The exhibition will showcase some of Cless´ über-detailed collages; Anthony Zinonos´ intervened calendars; Rubén B., refined compositions; Max-o-matic´s controlled chaos; April Gertler´s collaged banners; Damien Tran´s nostalgic visual landscapes or Grande´s collaged imaginary cartography; Goster´s dada inspired cuts and Isabelle Cordemans´ body inventions among others.
This edition of the IWCS will be special: A series of talks and workshops are going to add some action to the show. Anthony Zinonos, Dennis Busch, Damien Tran and Rubén B. will talk about their vision of collage and about their work process; Rubén B. and Isabel Reitemeyer will host two live collage workshops open to those who want to take part in a Weird live collage session.
