Discussion 16. August

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.

We live in a floating modernity, says sociologist Zygmunt Bauman. Things change quickly and we are all expected to be flexible and change with it. Whatever we think of that, it has affected our ways of thinking and acting in the last 3 – 4 decades. Our ENDEGRA network is itself a consequence of this floating new world. To develop the network, we have to identify terms and pre-conditions in order to adapt to or to oppose the changes we see. Either way, we need to have good arguments to apply for co-funding for work and projects and to make politicians and decision makers understand that art, in all forms, is a founding necessity in a democratic society.

Our workshops are our physical anchor grounds. Our knowledge and skills are not thretened by change, only by lack of money.

In art-making, there are good reasons to reach a consensus on HOW art is made in order to be able to provide the necessary conditions for it to be made. It is, for instance, of little use to deny the need of machinery and tools we use in artistic printmaking. If you don ́t have what it takes, no print will be made. This, of course, applies to any art-making, from huge opera projects to needle point: production terms must be adequate. You cannot talk your way out of them.

So, to secure good quality in art-making possibilities, we have to agree on the production terms. But we do not have to agree on how we regard the outcome of artistic production. The artistic quality, how

art looks, what it expresses or what things are called does not benefit from such agreements. When it comes to that, we can, and indeed should, have interesting and agonistic1 discussions and ”fights”.

What we need, to work with and develop printmaking, has to be separated from subjective opinions

about art and different formalities in art. The conceptual framework must be flexible and open in respect of different standpoints and ways of working. Respect in these matters does of course not mean that the differences can ́t be argued and discussed. Quite the opposite! Discussions about art are vital, but unlike discussions about artistic prodution terms, discussions about art don ́t have to end in a consensus to be nutritious and worthwhile.

This attitude towards art and art making mirrors what is needed (but not implemented) in society as a whole. We come from different traditions, different backgrounds. We all carry heritage that might occur

strange to others. In the floating new world everyone of us is a stranger sometimes and we have to be able to deal with ambivalence and ambiguity.

Art is good here. To tell about the world through art presents an ambivalent language situation in itself.

Art communicates through our different experiences. That is: art communicates through my ability to open my own experience as a tool for interpretation, a tool to create meaning. (This ability has to be trained. It is a skill, like reading and writing. But we don ́t acknowledge it in our elementary schooling. That has to do with our ”Newtonism”, the mechanical view on life that we have extracted from Newton ́s theories, but that he didn ́t have himself… : )

So; while we develop and make use of our network, we articulate the terms and conditions needed in

artistic printmaking. It gives us great possibilities to show ourselves and others how to not avoid, but

make use of, the ambivalence and ambiguity of our time and of course: the ambiguity it allways has

been to be human and live in the world.
What do we need to agree on to develop ENDEGRA and conditions for printmaking?
What do we need to be able to disagree on to develop ENDEGRA and conditions for printmaking?

Looking forward to Dresden 11 – 17 august!

Art-landscape and place of landscape art – Dresden

Dr. phil. Anke Fröhlich (Dresden): 

„Topography – Typography“
Art-landscape and place of landscape art – Dresden / Typography as a tool for intellectual and emotional knowledge / Printmaking-role since the 15th century in Saxony 

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. So the printed artworks by that time enclosed the whole knowledge and the images about the world and god.

Also in the following epochs like the enlightement in the 18th century Dresden was a center of fine arts including prints. Leipzig had a lot of printing houses and for them many artists made very tastfull illustrations for the book market.

But in Dresden growes a school of gifted landscape painter who also made engravings and etchings. There is a very close relation between topographical artworks, the presentation of the natural area and thinking about world. Details of composition, figures and so on includes a special view on the world.

This view is in Baroque very different to the age of sensitivity or Romantic, the highpoint of landscape painting in Saxony. It changed from a view over the whole world to the view on details and reflect the moved relation between individual and god. Famous artists like Dietricy, Adrian Zingg or Johann Christian Klengel and there followers found the environments of Dresden and the mountains “Sächsische Schweiz” as places an topics of a new kind of beauty. Caspar David Friedrich used the nature as symbol for the human soul.

With a lot of impressive examples Dr. Anke Fröhlich will show the development of using woodcuts, engravings and etchings in the german art history especially in Saxony and considering the rich tradition of landscapes.

We are just planning

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.


Topography is a scientific tool to understand conditions and preconditions of an investigated terrain. As a metaphor we can use it to get a better understanding of our situation as artists and printmakers today. How would we describe the ”landscape” where we live and work as artists and printmakers? What maps do we need to draw to find our ways? What do we need to consider in the present artistic ”ecology”?


Typography, on the other hand, was always a tool to bring both intellectual and emotional knowledge. To print and to spread that knowledge we need freedom of expression and liberty of the press. We live in a society that wants to develop and deepen democracy. As printmakers, we have a responsibility: not just to save methods and tools as a cultural heritage, but to save preconditions for independent artistic language possibilities and expression. What are the preconditions of printmaking today? How can we understand, develop and defend our position as publishers of free press and independent and free art?

Handpressendrucke Dresden 5. – 16. November 2012

KünstlerInnen     Die Drucker     Tagebuch     Handpressendrucke

In Zusammenarbeit mit der Galerie Baer, der Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden, dem Kupferstich-Kabinett der Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen und dem Amt für Kultur und Denkmalschutz lädt die Grafikwerkstatt zu einem Workshop ”Handpressendruck” ein. Ziel ist die Förderung von Künstlerinnen und Künstlern, die mit originaldruckgrafischen Techniken arbeiten wollen, außerdem die Pflege von Originaldruckgrafik in Qualität und Vielfalt.

Im Workshop ”Handpressendrucke Dresden 2012” arbeiten Svea Duwe, Stefan Krauth, Tanja Pohl, Thomas Prochnow, Elisabeth Richter und Christoph Roßner mit den Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten der originaldruckgrafischen Verfahren. Eine Ausstellung in der Galerie Baer bildet ab 16.11. den Abschluss.

Der Workshop soll sich u.a. der Algrafie widmen. Dieses Verfahren wird in der Grafikwerkstatt seit den 1970iger Jahren gepflegt und weiterentwickelt. Heute verbindet unsere spezielle Variante der Hand-Algrafie, in der Radierpresse auf Büttenpapier gedruckt, nahezu ideal moderne Bildmedien mit klassischer Originaldruckgrafik – mit Lithotusche und Lithokreide direkt gezeichnet oder als Materialabdruck, Umdruck, Kopieübertragung, Collage, Frottage, Fotogramm bis hin zu Übertragungen natürlicher Halbtöne in einen Belichtungsprozeß mit oder ohne fotografische oder digitale Veränderungen.

Innerhalb der 10 Tage können die KünstlerInnen in der Grafikwerkstatt Dresden in Hochdruck, Algrafie und Radierung frei arbeiten, wobei ebenso großer Wert auf den fachlichen und künstlerischen Austausch gelegt werden soll. Frei arbeiten bedeutet: es steht allen sechs TeilnehmerInnen eine Presse und vollständige Arbeitsumgebung zum eigenen Experimentieren zur Verfügung und wir drei Drucker der Grafikwerkstatt, Torsten Leupold, Udo Haufe und Peter Stephan, unterstützt durch Simon Faulhaber stehen zur drucktechnischen Beratung zur Seite.

Zusätzlich bieten wir in den Werkstattwochen die Herstellung eines mehrfarbiges Blattes für die „Edition Handpressendrucke“ an. Maximal 6 Farben werden als Ausführungsarbeit gedruckt – täglich je eine Farbe als Demonstration der Technik Algrafie auf der Offsetandruckpresse, auf Hahnemühle Büttenpapier in der Größe von 27 x 39 cm.
