Collage has played an important role in Baechlers body of work at various stages in his career. The students were encouraged to work autonomously during the workshop and given every freedom in their interpretation and utilisation of this stylistic method. It was amazing to see, how each participant developed his own very personal style of collage. Some people took the opportunity to adress previously unresolved stumbling blocks in their work by using this technique. The nearby fields and forests allowed natural objects to be incorporated some of the compositions or it enabled the artist to devote himself entirely to the subject of landscape collage.
