International Conference 'Post-digital printmaking. Redefinition of print'


Printmaking Department, Faculty of Graphics and Media ArtThe Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, Poland
Cordially invites to participate in the international printmaking conference 
Post-digital printmaking. Redefinition of print
which will be held from 6th to 8th  December, 2017at the Center for Applied Arts. Center for Innovation (CSU.CI), Traugutta Street 19/21, Wrocław
We invite artists and art theorists to participate in debate on the role, condition and future of contemporary printmaking. We believe that the opportunity to juxtapose and compare a variety of artistic and scientific perspectives will forge creative and meaningful discussion. 

 The conference will be a continuation of the 2013 symposium/exhibition Cutting-Edge Printmaking, followed by the 2015 seminar/exhibition Redefinition of the concept of matrix organised by The E. Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw. These events provided excellent opportunities, not only to discuss the technical aspects of printmaking, but also to debate the artistic features and possibilities within printmaking that other mediums lack. 

We would like to continue this theme and include following issues in the debate:– experiments within traditional techniques;– coexistence of traditional printmaking with new technologies;– exploring the technical limits of print;– experiments with a matrix and different substrates;– printmaking within a field of spatial interventions;– technological news and new possibilities of creating images.
The program of the conference includes: lectures // papers // incubators // mentoring sessions // exhibitions Organisers plan to publish bilingual conference publication.
