The british artist John Stezaker (1949 in Worcester, UK), is known for his surrealistic collages, made from found media images like photographs of movie stars, old postcards, illustrations, or pornographic publications. He combines these materials, intervening ever so slightly. In recent years, his art has received increasing acclaim in the international art scene, resulting in multiple solo and group exhibitions worldwide. At the Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, John Stezaker will speak about his work in a more personal artist lecture, providing insight into the background of his versatile oeuvre, explaining why he is fascinated by certain images and what it feels like to cut up old photographs.

John Stezaker, born 1949 in Worcester, UK, lives and works in London. His work re-examines the various relationships to the photographic image: as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. Stezaker’s work was featured in numerous international exhibitions such as at Whitechapel Gallery, London, 2011, which traveled to Mudam Luxembourg, and the Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis. His work is part of major institutional collections such as Museum of Modern Art, NewYork, the Tate Collection, London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and The Rubell Family Collection, Miami.
