Society for Cutting Up Paper

May 18, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm BST

Snip snip. Come and make collages with the Society for Cutting Up Paper!

“For me, collages manage to – it satisfies all of my madness, like I’m able to make these obsessive things, but then I’m also able to make these very strong statements. I don’t know what they mean to other people, but in my mind, they have a very strong particular resonance; there’s sort of a power.” – Wangechi Mutu

“New things had to be made out of fragments.” – Kurt Schwitters

We have:
photocopies for the MayDay Rooms archive, some old magazines, a few other bits and bobs and a photocopier;  knives and cutting mats; glue and card; space.

Things you could bring:
raw material (i.e. things to cut up and glue down); your own knife and cutting mat, if you can; snacks and drinks; tunes.

Need some inspiration? Try Hannah Hoch, Kurt Schwitters, Wangechi Mutu, Winston Smith, John Heartfield, Peter Kennard…

There is no need to book but if you have any questions please email: c.t.j@riseup.net
