Birger Rehse

I am a collagist. My ideas are my impulsion. My contemporary collages are inspired by surrealism and dadaism.

I create collages through the use of an uncontrolled creation process, this means the spontaneous selection and combination of image elements, in which I switch off logic and reason (automatism). Associations, feelings and thoughts that arise during the creation process should flow unfiltered into the collage.

I only work analogue with paper, scissors and glue and without editing on the computer. Finding, selecting, sorting, cutting, designing and gluing material is a kind of meditation for me.

I was born in Hamburg in 1975 and now live with my family in Berlin.
