The first-year HISK residents are back at the Frans Masereel Centre for the one week workshop „Being more honest about the process“ to explore printmaking as part of their artistic practice. In addition to learning printmaking techniques and processes the workshop also aims to develop and investigate conceptual frameworks of printmaking as part of a contemporary art practice. Questions around the visibility of the making process of an art work will be discussed and how this visibility might impact the meaning and reading of this work. Is there a way to make the artist more visible by being more honest about the process?
The workshop is lead by artists and printmakers Lisa Wilkens and Liselotte van Daele as well as the technical staff at the Frans Masereel Centre.
Simultaneously with their stay, a group of young curators, writers and critics will reside at the centre for a writing workshop. This group was put together by Hart magazine and rekto:verso magazine.
