An ode to adhesive tape



An ode to adhesive tape

Adhesive tapes are ubiquitous. Starting with transparent tape in the office to tailor-made double-sided adhesive tapes for industry, adhesive tape now occupies an indispensable position in the market of wide-ranging adhesive products. According to the industry’s association Klebstoffe e.V., the German adhesives industry produced almost 1 billion square meters of adhesive tape in 2012.* This would completely cover an area with adhesive tape that was equivalent to 140,000 soccer fields or 10 times the northern German island of Sylt with adhesive tape.

Many artists also use adhesive tape to express their ideas through their works of art. One such artist is Monika Grzymala, who created her installations with 3.8 kilometers of black adhesive tape in the Lothar Fischer Museum in Neumarkt–Oberpfalz, Germany.*
