The Grade 11 Visual Art new term Project ‘JUXTAPOSE’ inspired loads of thinking, exploring and research.

We are looking at Photomontage as a new technique to discover artiststic expression in an interesting and ‘tongue-in-cheek’ method by combining contrasting and random images and photographs.

Photomontage is often used as a means of expressing political dissent.

It was first used as a technique by the dadaists in 1915 in their protests against the First World War. It was later adopted by the surrealists who exploited the possibilities photomontage offered by using free association to bring together widely disparate images, to reflect the workings of the unconscious mind.

Students are excited to showing their own version of  DADA art.
