Titelblatt des Programms zum Workshop: Message, Messenger, or False Friend? Early Modern Print as Intermediary. Der Workshop findet im Rahmen des "SACRIMA Research Projekt" (Laufzeit 2016-2021) statt.

In the early modern era, woodcut and engraved prints operated on multiple levels: as individual creations, and as resources representing preexisting images, objects and spaces. Given the medium’s inherent multiplicity and mobility, prints effectively project visual ideas and concepts, creating mobile models in image and text for dissemination. The medial constitution of print fosters an often undervalued phenomenon of reinterpretation, by channeling traits of artistry and subject matter from the printed medium back into individually produced objects, including paintings, sculptures, and architecture. The workshop engages with the intermediary quality of print and the effective “translation” of information and imagery into situated, singular artefacts. It considers print culture simultaneously for its materiality, as a conveyor of ideas and information tempered by physical and visual constraints, as well as a conceptual conduit extending between cultures and communities.
