The art of collage has a long history in both art and writing. From German Dadaist Hannah Höch, to Harlem Renaissance artist Romare Bearden, to the Beat writer William S. Burroughs, collage has provided a means of re-contextualizing, re-seeing, and encountering the uncanny through accidents of juxtaposition. Even today, contemporary hip-hop is a popular form of collage, as artists sample and resample, layer and reconfigure sounds of the past with new beats and lyrics. Join writer and 4Cs English professor Rebecca Griffin for an interactive workshop that begins with a brief discussion of various approaches to collage--and then invites participants to create and share their own collage creations over Zoom. All you need is a pile of used paper (look in your recycling bin), some glue or tape, scissors, and a willingness to try something new.
