Let's print in Leipzig 2
Workshop and Exhibition
"Let's print in Leipzig 2" is a cooperation between three artistic printing workshops (stein_werk, Lithography and Letterpress Printing Workshop / Thomas Franke, Atelier für Radierung Leipzig / Maria Ondrej, atelier carpe plumbum / Thomas Siemon) from Leipzig with the Museum of the Printing Arts Leipzig. The participants invite nine international artists to Leipzig. For twelve days from the 19th to the 30th of August they will realize their graphic works with the historical presses. The special feature of the workshop is the experimental format. Only in the historic workshops of the museum all three different printing techniques can be used artistically, enabling new graphic expressions. The artists are supported by the heads of the three printing workshops. Afterwards, the corresponding exhibition "Let's print in Leipzig 2" will present the work results as well as other graphic works by the participating artists.
