STRIKE WHILE THE INK IS HOT!: History of Political Print (ONLINE)
This online lecture and image workshop class will dive into the radical history of political printmaking and graphics focusing on BIPOC, women, queer artists and activists. We will look at artwork discussing facism, xenophobia, police brutality, racism, misogyny, capitalism– all with the goal of creating more knowledge and accountability as critical thinkers, artists and activists. The print mediums we will explore range from lithography, relief, screen, etching and risograph. Lectures serve as a crash course looking into the urgent art history of political printmakers from Jose Guadalupe Posada to Kathe Kollwitz and contemporary artists cooperatives like Justseeds. Students will gain knowledge on the ever growing history of arts activism and gain new design insight. We will learn from these complex intersecting histories and also have a space to share and workshop political images culminating into a zine.
