Fine cuts, sharp edges, empty spaces, play with light falling through deliberately placed cuts. The knife injures the paper and shapes it at the same time. It symbolises life, which shapes us into the people we are through injury, separation and incision.
This year, the four scholarship holders have dedicated themselves to the paper cut technique - sometimes with the knife, sometimes with fire - and hence gave the name to the autumn/winter exhibition: CUT.
Sponsored by d'mage, Hahnemühle and Canon Germany, the Paper Residency! material and studio scholarship has been in existence since 2018, offering artists the opportunity to work intensively with paper once a year in Berlin and Munich. Some of the works created here become part of the museum’s collection. The works from this year's residencies are for the first time being shown to the public.
The exhibition can be seen in the Haus des Papiers starting November 3rd to June 2024, from 10 am to 5 pm Fridays to Sundays.
