For the discussion in Dresden August 16, 2013 – with best regards from the moderators Nina Bondeson & Jim Berggren!
What do we need to agree on? What do we not need to agree on?
When we discuss how we want to continue the work with ENDEGRA, it is important to sort out what it is we need to agree on and what is it we do not have to share opinions about, in order to strengthen and extend opportunities within printmaking. These two questions are at the same time a supportive reverse gear if a discussion comes to a dead end, since the only way forward from a dead end is to back out of it. → more

Monday 12th: Lecture
Thursday 15th: Presentation of selected prints and discussion
In the rich tradition of the saxon history the graphical arts plays a great rule. From the beginning of engravings and woodcuts since around 1500 graphical prints served as single-sheet woodcuts, flyers or book illustrations; especially because Saxony in that time was a main territory of the theological movements reformation and counter reformation. Lukas Cranach and his followers found very popular compositions into that disputes – and allways in closely contact with the printed word. → more

Topography – Typography
The next ENDEGRA meeting starts in the landscape of Middlegermany and Saxony with its vast traditions in art and culture, where printmaking has played a vital role since the 15th century. In the romantic era, that emanated in the 18th century, visual artists from the Dresden area started to paint the lovely, strange and always expressive and characteristic landscape along the river Elbe and in the Sächsische Schweiz. They depicted the outer landscape to use it as a metaphor for an inner landscape. Their art led to a widely spread appreciation of the landscape, as a physical place to visit and as pictures that told about our lived experiences. → more
