Manfest mot samtiden – Edvard Derkert Grafisk form: Edvard Derkert 60 sidor storlek:158 – 230 mm, bilder in grey scale, the text is in swedish, Stockholm 2009 Pris 100 Swedish crowns

"Det finns en lekfullhet i Edvard Derkerts manifest – för ett manifest är det, även om infattningen är milt ironisk och baksidestexten ställer allvaret i uppsåtet i fråga - en lekfullhet som lockar till leende och eftertanke. Det lekfulla sträcker sig från det innehållsliga, från Derkerts (i numrerade fragment uppdelade) manifestartade uttalanden, till det visuella: formgivningens vilda och ofta pastischiserande stildrag, där olika typsnitt och "återbrukade" vinjettbilder och illustrationer punkterar Derkerts nutidskommenterande text med det förflutnas milda speglingar. Det är roligt, udda, otidsenligt"

The collage is the most important and influential artistic discovery of the twentieth century. The art-collage has been around for 100 years now but is still very much alive and thriving. Gallery [KG52] invited 21 artist from all over the world to participate in the exhibition Cut & Paste. Some have worked with collage for over 40 years and some just started out. The oldest artist is 66 and the youngest 19. Some artists are amateurs and some professionals. Many are well schooled while some are self taught. Something they all have in common is a sense of humour, playfulness and openness for the unexpected. This book includes their portraits as well as two longer texts about the theory and practice of collage in English and Swedish by Edvard Derkert.
