||International Triennale of Paper Art 2018
For the fourth time, the museums of the city of Deggendorf will be the international centre of paper art.
90 square metres at the Handwerksmuseum and all 340 square metres in the Stadtgalerie im Stadtmuseum will be exclusively dedicated to paper art with Global Paper 4 exhibition.
As in 2015, more than 400 artists from all over the world applied to participate in the Global Paper 4 exhibition. The entries were of a very high standard, making the jury’s work all the more difficult.
We were ultimately able to select 94 artists from 22 countries for the fourth Triennale of Paper Art in Deggendorf. The majority of the artists are from Germany and other European countries, but South Korea, Iran, Japan and Colombia are also represented.
In the exhibition viewers can experience a wide range of contemporary forms of paper art, which use paper as an artistic medium in its own right. The artists work with diverse forms of paper, including cellulose pulp, handmade paper, paper pulp, industrially produced paper, and paper waste from everyday use.
A striking array of techniques can be found in the exhibition, from paper folding to paper cutting and mixed media. The artists also address diverse subjects, including man and nature. Some of the artists engage with themes that critique society such as the refugee crisis or the war in Syria.
A richly illustrated bilingual catalogue (German/English) accompanies the exhibition.
