Using graphic prints to think
The 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?
Jan Svenungsson, visual artist, Head of Graphics and Printmaking Department at the University of Applied Arts Vienna
"Hard to categorize, this deft book by the Swedish artist Jan Svenungsson should be read by everyone involved with contemporary prints, whether as makers or viewers. [...] This attentiveness to multiple levels of meaning extends to the book’s design, which is so graceful it is easy to overlook how clever it is." (Susan Tallman in Art in Print, 2019)
"The book presents the entire graphic works of the artis Jan Svenungsson accompanied by a text that seamlessy combines practical information, stories and speculations in an entertaining way." (In GRABADO Y EDICIÓN, 01.2022)
