Eduardo Paolozzi, Collage, 1953

From the National Galleries of Scotland:

Collage was of crucial importance throughout Paolozzi’s work - many of his sculptures and prints were made in a collage fashion, built up from different imprints or layers of objects and images. This collage is composed of fragments of screenprints, as well as tickets and scraps of magazines and drawings. Collage is a supremely twentieth-century medium, mirroring the way we flick through articles and advertisements in magazines, or the way we switch between television channels. The art-historic pedigree of collages composed from everyday materials goes back to the German Dada artist Kurt Schwitters who made a similar use of collage from the late 1910s on.
