The Kolaj Archive

Kolaj Magazine is a quarterly, printed, art magazine reviewing and surveying contemporary collage with an international perspective. We are interested in collage as a medium, a genre, a community, and a 21st century art movement. In addition to the magazine, Kolaj publishes catalogs, booklets, programs, special editions, and trading card packs.

The editorial philosophy of Kolaj Magazine is such that we want each issue to be a timeless document of collage and artists, writers, curators, and thinkers who work in this global community. In response to a number of requests from those seeking to build and maintain a complete archive, we offer this page as a resource.

The complete archive (26 issues of the magazine plus 16 other projects, as of October 2019) is available for purchase. If you are looking to complete an archive that you have already started building, use this checklist to identify your missing issues, send us an email, and we will provide you a custom quote for the missing items.

The Book as a Place of Collage

EXHIBITION CATALOG

Cultural Decontructions

Collage is unique as a medium in that it uses as its material artifacts from the world itself. To harvest those fragments, the artist must first deconstruct culture; they must select, cut, and remove the elements they do not wish to use and then reconstruct work that tells a new story. In "Cultural Deconstructions: Critical Issues in Collage", curator Ric Kasini Kadour presents examples of collage artists who are deconstructing identity as a way to critique culture. MORE

Belgian artist Strook‘s building-sized collage is on the cover of the issue. In her profile of the artist, Etty Yaniv writes, "The found wood pieces Strook fuses in his assemblages and the imagery he depicts in his collaged paintings manifest an act of revival: allocating fragmented elements of decay by making an artistic use for them and out of them."

MAGAZINE

Kolaj #17

"One of the things that makes collage, as practiced today, uniquely modernist is the fact that a collage always references itself….The modernist painter used bad brush strokes, a poorly drawn faces, and awkward trees to remind the viewer that they are looking at a painting, to ask the viewer to contemplate the artifice of the discipline, of the medium, and to delve into the ideas, feelings, and experience behind it….By its nature, collage has always done this." from Kolaj #17 Editorial. READ MORE


MAGAZINE

Kolaj #16

"I am not advocating for political art, for sentimental brow beating, or loose propaganda. I am suggesting that artists take a page from the CIA playbook and wield the soft power of art.
