John Stezaker—Resonating Nostalgic Lyricism

In an image-saturated world, British collage artist John Stezaker rather creates more with less. Cutting up yesterday photographs, subtracting pieces, and juxtaposing faces, he transforms forgotten photographs and postcards into symbolic portraiture of modernism. Stezaker’s artistic interests in examining hidden relations between images have bestowed international success and recognition upon him and his collage art. Gestalten.tv had a precious opportunity to speak with the artist at his exhibition in Berlin’s Capitain Petzel Gallery.

Featured in the exhibition The Age of Collage, his topical work is now on display at Gestalten Space in Berlin until January 12, 2014. The accompanying book of the same title also takes an insightful behind-the-scenes look at those working with this interdisciplinary and cross-media approach.

pjotrberchem:

The Age of Collage is the first international group exhibition on contemporary collage.

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.

Featured Artists: Ashkan Honarvar, Astrid Klein, Beni Bischof, Beth Hoeckel, Brandi Strickland, Charles Wilkin, Dennis Busch, Dominic McGill, Eva Eun-sil Han, Geoff J. Kim, James Gallagher, Jesse Draxler, John Stezaker, Jordan Clark, John Vincent Aranda, Jose Romussi, Julia Busch, Katrien de Blauwer, Kerstin Stephan, Leigh Wells, Liam Crockard, Linder Sterling, Luis Dourado, Matthieu Bourel, Max-o-matic, Nathaniel Whitcomb, Nils Karsten, Noa Giniger, Ruth van Beek, Sergei Sviatchenko, and Virginia Echeverria.

There`s also a book about the Age of Collage

New Video: Around The World

The Atlas for Today


The world is an amazing place, filled with complexity and contradiction. Today, we swim in floods of data and ideas, numbers and phrases that appear on our screens and in our media. Fortunately, we have storytellers and visual interpreters who explain, graphically, how something happened and what went on. Individually, they help us understand a single issue. Together, they explain a slice of the world.

Our recent book Around The World is filled with these remarkable stories and helpful infographics collected from countries spanning the globe. This is the world that we live in, beautiful and complicated, drawn out and explained. Learn a bit more about it in this video.
