Making Prints and Thinking About It
book presents the entire graphic works of the artist Jan Svenungsson, who has been responsible Graphics and Printmaking at
the University of Applied Arts in Vienna since 2011, accompanied by a text that seamlessly combines practical information,
stories and speculations in an entertaining way.
His overarching objective is to critically discuss the meaning
of graphic prints in contemporary art, and more specifically: to illuminate the role of single-handedly "making" them – at
a time when the conditions for exercising creativity are undergoing rapid change: What are the implications of the tools the
artist selects? What does authenticity mean in today’s art? How does the role of the artist change when he makes himself dependent
on artificial intelligence?
