Robert Rauschenberg, collage and solvent transfer, 1974

This pop art pioneer created combination paintings with a random build-up of what the streets of Manhattan offered. They are satirical collage assemblages of different materials, with which Robert Rauschenberg made fun of the all-consuming American. His entire oeuvre fills the gap between life and art.

In the seventies he already referred to our contemporary zap culture with his thin canvas called ‘Mover’. This original work contains a culture collage on a large double gauze cloth. The artist incorporated advertisements, sensational press photos, sports information and amusing cartoon characters. This American turned out to be a visionary and referred to our time, his work was like a PC that entertained the people today with the same ingredients as ever.
