In his commentary, “Collage Magic”, Kolaj Magazine Editor Ric Kasini Kadour quotes German critical theorist Theodor Adorno, “The task of art today is to bring chaos into order. Artistic productivity is the capacity of volition in involition. Art is magic, emancipated from the lie of being the truth.“
The Special Edition also features a profile of Irish publisher Redfoxpress, whose current catalogue features over fifty collage books.
