Art works on newspapers and book covers
April 21 > June 27, 2015

Collages and photomontages by Karl Waldmann, using book covers, magazines and newspapers.

The printed press is a topic that fascinates all intellectuals. Over the past 10 years, its disappearance has been announced on a regular basis, for economic reasons or to make way for a press on the Web. The same is true for "books". They are both "objects" which appeal to fans of paper for its visual beauty or its tangible form; the newspaper for its "character", its "headlines", "columns", its size, piles, circulation, management, policy, leanings.

People are also fond of books for their beauty, their presence on a table or neatly arranged on bookshelves. Their covers, hardback, shiny or matt, decorative, sober or illuminated, their pictures, are encouraging us from the very first glance to open them and look inside. The spine of a book is also of importance, as it allows the book to "manifest itself" in the eyes of anyone noticing it, providing a certain complicity regarding the content shared by the spectator, the object, and necessarily the author.

Books and newspapers have always been accomplices of artists who use them as a support or to convey an idea, a feeling, a project, or denunciation.The character and typeface, the lightness or hardness of the paper or cover, become a springboard for artistic expression by conserving or preserving what the artist decides to retain from "reality" in order to appropriate it for himself, and become its master. "Due to its primitive elegance, the support itself becomes a vector of my own expression, me, the artist, who does not want to dominate the ‘world’ but just be a part of it, so as to continue more effectively to create it, mark it with my desire to understand, save, love, and one day, leave it."

This exhibition is devoted on the ground floor of the gallery to works by K. Waldmann created on these supports, and showing us the importance the artist attributed to "pieces of paper". A radical outsider, denouncing the dictatorships of Stalin and the Nazis in his time, or simply an abstract artist, swinging from Surrealism to Constructivism, Dadaism, in these collages which all start with newspapers or books. On the same theme, the first floor presents several historic or more contemporary artists who have embraced books or newspapers in one of their artworks or in a series of works.
