Curator, Christian Rattemeyer: One of the discoveries I made when looking through all the material in the collection was the degree to which work from the early 2000s focused on and incorporated methods and techniques of appropriation, collage and montage and featured mediated images that came through various sources of mass publications.

Several artists very specifically refer to aspects of art history, to other artists or famous works, or circumstances that we very clearly associate with the recent and not so recent art history.

One aspect of ... many of the works is the playfulness but also the precision with which a wide variety of topics and contexts can be brought together.
