You have a copy of the first book about collage artists from the Lowlands in front of you.
Not the first book about collage art in the world and definitely not the last to be published, but a meaningful document about the collage world.
Collage seems to be the changeling in art, but always has been and still is a beloved technique for a lot of different kind of artists, like : Hannah Höch, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Kurt Schwitters, Raoul Hausmann, Man Ray, Eileen Agar, Joseph Cornell, Nancy Spero, John Stezaker, Wangechi Mutu, Eugenia Loli.
And in the Lowlands: Paul Joosten, Danny Matthys, Ad Snijders, Annie Abrahams and Saskia Olde Wolbers. To name a few..
There is a great variety in collage art. Collage artists differentiate themselves by big movements like Cubism, Dadaïsm, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop-Art, Mail-Art, Fluxus, but also by technique.
I am convinced that you will be surprised. You will be dragged along in the rollercoaster of the collage art of the Lowlands and at the end of the book you will be gasping for breath.
