The Collage Memory Game provides you with an insight into the broad art movement. Collage is a technique of art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. It allowed artists to engage with existing materials, to which they could assign new contexts in order to create a brand new artwork.
Ranging from newspapers and magazines to maps, tickets, propaganda, photographs, ribbons, postage stamps, paint, text and found objects, the elements of collage participate in a handy creative process of putting artworks together and even breaking them apart, in an artistic exploration into the unknown.
The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.
