This project proposes a “genealogy” of the manifestations and objects specific to print media. It includes two components: a docu-book, and a series of photo lithography prints presented on wallcharts. The docu-book, a documentary and visual object, investigates whether and how print workshops play a role in the construction of an artistic identity. The visuals in the docu-book and on the wallcharts take a humorous and satirical look at artists, and printmaking studios. The images examine different and ongoing concepts and positions on print media, the mission and role of studios, and how artists navigate their expectations of place. Acting as an archivist, contemporary and historical works will be cited, re-contextualized, and “re-imagined” to create an ambiguous and ironic sequel on the culture of print media.
