The artistic and industrial printing techniques undergo a constant development. Modern technology allows a great variety of relief, intaglio, lithography, screen and digital print. Therefore, the artistic prints can no longer be limited only to the classical techniques. Artists are using the new technical possibilities with interest. Therefore in the identification of the artistic works we are also confronted with mechanical, mostly photomechanical techniques.
In the course both manual artistic printing techniques and photomechanical techniques are introduced. However, the focus will be on the manual processes. The individual printing techniques with their numerous subgroups will be presented in detail during lectures.
In the practical part the two days offer the opportunity to look at a great number and variety of original prints under magnification. There are several stereo microscopes available. During these exercises the special characteristics of each technique will be worked out.
