Robert Crotla, The Collection - Archive – Reflektor M Digest #07

The Collection - Archive is an exemplary piece by Robert Crotla, exhibited originally at the FAVORITEN III exhibition at Lenbachhaus in 2016. The way Crotla collects images has been always the core of his works, which surpass the definition of collage as a patch-worked image or object; he also creates - departing of the logics of the collage - spaces, archives and situations, related one way or another to the history of visual culture.


Reflektor M, the online platform for contemporary art based in Munch, presents in an extended collaboration with melville brand design its first twelve picks of the year 2016/2017. Scrolling down our list of reviews, events and exhibitions in Munich, we selected the ones that we considered the most thrilling experiences in 2016. The selection, as always, is a subjective one, mostly bond to intellectual and personal exchanges that were possible within an exhibition or a specific situation.

In a more or less chronological order, the following projecs are published on the frame of 100for10, an initiative by melville brand design for artists books; it stands for 100 pages or 10 Euros.
