The International printmaking conference "Post-digital printmaking. Redefintion of print" was organised by the Faculty of Graphics and Media Art in December, 2017. Artists as well as art theoreticians took part in the conference, which contributed to the discussion on the role, condition, place and future of contemporary printmaking. It was neither the first nor the final attempt to propose a new classification of printmaking. Successive exhibitions, reviews, conferences and symposia show that contemporary printmaking is thematically multi-threaded and extremely diversified with respect to technique. All areas of our lives are subjected to digitalization. And so is art. Therefore, even if thinking about printmaking from the point of view of works based on refined techniques has not yet become obsolete, it needs to be constantly redefined. We wanted to continue this topic and to include the following issues in the debate: experiments within the classical techniques; the coexistence of traditional printmaking techniques and new technologies; overcoming the limits of the technical possibilities of printing; object-oriented printmaking; installation-based printmaking; technological innovations and new possibilities of creating images; a misprint as an impulse and a prime mover of the creative process in printmaking. Program and photographic documentation can be found on the conference website or facebook page.

The cooperative project "the misprint" initiated by Prof. Miida Seiichiro and developed by Prof. Michael Schneider from Tokyo University of the Arts brought young artists from 19 universities, 14 countries and 5 continents together to explore how they deal with the unpredictable in the creative process and how the draw inspiration from failure. International Contemporary Printed Art Exhibition & Symposium in Chinretsukan Gallery, Tokyo University of the Arts (May 10–29, 2017) was an occasion for meetings and confrontations of different artistic attitudes and perspectives. It also opened the series of presentations around the world. The first stop of the Zureta exhibition was Shanghai University. Bratislava, Wrocław, Dublin and Melbourne are the next ones. Wrocław Academy is proud to be a part of the Zureta project. We kindly invite you to the Neon Gallery, The Centre of Applied Arts and Innovation, the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland. Opening time of the exhibition: April 14–30, 2018. More information on the project website.
