• April 28th, 4 p.m: Ruth Pelzer-Montada, “Printmaking and photography: deceleration through the imprint?”

    The lecture will take place at Hordaland Kunstsenter in collaboration with Trykkeriet – center for contemporary printmaking.

    Ruth Pelzer-Montada´s talk will focus on the works of two artists, Australian Brook Andrew and German Christiane Baumgartner. In discussing their woodcuts, she will argue that their particular material methods result in effects that slow down the viewer’s experience of viewing and thus increase the critical potential of the (photographic) image. Both utilize camera-based images as their source material, hence, their particular approaches to and uses of print processes imply a questioning of the unproblematic transparency that is linked to the camera-based image.
