Pure Print



Workshops will be dedicated to the general conceptual aspects of printmaking such as imprint, reproduction, seriality, physicality and translation. Workshops on concept application of print and printmaking into collaborative projects, opening up new possibilities and perspectives on crea­tive practice based on accessibility, old and new formats of art­ist’s books publishing, that is, developing opportunities to get professional fine art printmaking skills into the hands of as many print practitioners as possible.



To specific technical aspects of printmaking, the transferred image, the possibility of multiples, the obsession with the media and craft of printmaking, with intrinsic qualities of the materials as in the poetic associations they embody. How such approaches question the assumed immediacy and directness of drawing as well as its proximity to the body? Which expressive potentials can they claim to achieve? Workshops on traditional formats and clas­sical printmaking techniques.


To highlight printed material’s relevance to contemporary art, the significance of the choice of medium, its intrinsic qualities and the skilled craftsmanship with which it is executed, the inherent visual appearance resulting from each process. Workshops will introduce print and the influence of digital technologies and new media.


To highlight the potential of an infinite flexible, accessible art form, through case studies of artists work, new media, and tech­niques including ephemeral work, appropriated objects, print on alternative and new surfaces (glass, ceramics, concrete, leather, metal, plastic and textiles), use of unusual materials and tools, creating links with industry within an art research practice and the use of innovative expertise. Workshops will expand techno­logical borders.
