On attrape bien les followers avec des likes (We Are Good at Catching Followers with Likes) by the artist SLip, the cover of Kolaj 38, is a commentary on how social media fights for our attention, devotion, and patronage. In Kolaj 38, we ask what happens when a work of art becomes detached from the artist, orphaned, unidentified. We learn about Alicia Saadi’s captivating billboard installation in New Jersey, showcasing her experience with Kolaj Institute’s Collage as Street Art Residency. An interview with Lance Letscher offers a candid view on what defines a successful artwork, while Kim Triedman ties poetry and collage in her artful journey. Anna Rémuzon explores the subtle, vibrant meeting of Expressionism, Surrealism & Pop Culture in the artwork of Czech artist Tomáš Jetela. Steven Specht raises questions about AI and art, emphasizing the authentic experience of the collage artist. Through artist portfolios, we journey to France, the United States, and Germany. We hope each issue of Kolaj Magazine takes you someplace you’ve never been.

We are living in an explosively political time, faced with crises that are not only deepening individually, but becoming increasingly intersectional in relation to each other. There is a strong history of collage art being used to tackle complex socio-political issues during some of the most difficult eras, but how can it meet this moment and spark meaningful dialogues about our varied, contemporary issues? In November 2022, G. E. Vogt led twelve artists in a month-long virtual residency with the goal of creating work that examines complex socio-political issues that contemporary society is contending with, in order to spark meaningful dialogue and inspire deeper engagement. Each artist chose specific issues to explore through the medium of collage. Their artwork allows viewers an opportunity to reflect on various forms of racism, colorism, ableism, and sexism; the war in Ukraine; climate change and the importance of permaculture; beauty standards and women’s autonomy. Their work makes its way into the world in this book and as a traveling exhibition.
Collage Saves the World is the second book from Kolaj Institute’s Politics in Collage Project, a series of residencies, publications, discussions, and exhibitions examining complex socio-political issues that contemporary society is contending with, in order to spark meaningful dialogue and inspire deeper engagement.
