The exhibition will take place on the premises of Hagen Castle in Bremischen, Germany.

In everyday life, paper is mostly used as an information carrier or packaging material. However, it is also amazingly flexible and versatile as an artistic medium in its own right. It is in the nature of paper that it can be reused and recycled, thus embodying a permanent life and offering countless possibilities for reuse and changeability. The exhibition theme "ReBloom", developed by IAPMA Exhibition Coordinator and Curator Ângela Barbour, revolves around paper's inherent potential to bring to life the memories and experiences it has absorbed. The IAPMA Biennial "ReBloom" will feature artworks that illustrate this and tell stories of renewed life, an awakening that can be experienced with paper and the fibres of which it is mostly made.
