“Expanded field printmaking practices: areas of transgression” will be presented as a platform for the reflection regarding the “expanded” printmaking, analyzing multiple visual examples of contemporary artists who use print media in situations of transgression.
In the particular case of printmaking, there is a breakdown of the conventional parameters that leads to a cyclical approach to other categories -photography, installations and video- and this gap places itself into a “in-between” category, extending not only to technological displacement or hybridization of the practice but also to the conception of art itself: the concern does not go through the definition of gender with which they work, even for the technique that the artists use, but to the discursive effectiveness that artwork generates through these hybrid means.
