ANELOR ROBIN is an artist and curator. As a curator, she considers the exhibitions she has presented to be a massive collage of different artistic elements, regardless of the assembled works origin, age or medium. Among other curatorial projects, Anelor is the founder of GlueHeads, a touring contemporary collage and publishing project, which she has showcased in Turkey, Morocco, Iran, Serbia and Germany.
CARO MANTKE is a German graphic designer and collage artist. She studied at the Bauhaus University Weimar, Germany and has enjoyed mixing the disciplines ever since. In her artistic work she tries to broaden the concept of classical collage – sometimes through the use of space, sometimes with the help of other media such as photography or moving images. By exploring visual boundaries and trying to overcome them, Caro uses well-known pictures as objets trouvé that can become anything except the normal.
JORGE CHAMORRO is a Spanish graphic designer, teacher and artist. In 2005 he set up his own business, developing communication projects for different clients and personal projects. He produced his first collage collection in 2006 and has been passionate about this artform ever since. His collage work is always analogue, with no digital manipulation, using only photographs from books and magazines, scissors and glue. Jorge’s work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally.
