Vitamin C+ is a who's who of over 100 international artists who all work with collage as a central part of their artistic practice. From analog cut-and-paste compositions and photo montages to digitally composed images and animations.
We meet, among others, the artists Njideka Akunyili Crosby; Ellen Gallagher; Peter Kennard; Linder, Christian Marclay; Wangechi Mutu; Deborah Roberts; Martha Rosler; and Mickalene Thomas, and a host of lesser-known names that deserve greater attention. The artists in the book have been selected by 69 leading experts, including museum directors, curators, critics and collectors.
Collage is an artistic language that includes found images, fragmentary forms and unexpected juxtapositions. While it first gained status as high art in the early twentieth century, the last decade has seen an explosion of artists using this dynamic and experimental approach to image making.
The author, Yuval Etgar, is a curator and art historian specializing in the history and theory of collage and image appropriation.
