dc.description.abstract Collage is presented as an allegoric art-form sui generis, considering allegory itself as an open-ended form of art. <br><br> The research provides a suggestion to a different understanding of collage i.e.: as a catalyst for a search for structure and semiotic relationships in an attempt to overcome a constant disordered expansion of an intertextual web and hermeneutic possibilities; and as an open work, providing multi-layered meanings. As an open work collage is typified by the prominent role of its "readers", its ambiguity and the infinite net of references it summons. <br><br> Collage may be conceived as a bridge between modernism and postmodernism, structuralism and post-structuralism; as a model for constant innovation and suppleness; as a stimulator for meta-artistic questions, acceptance of "soft" universals and re-evaluation of the role of the "other" within an artwork. <br><br> Works by Jasper Johns, Michal Na'aman, Dina Hoffman and the author of this thesis exemplify these ideas. en
