Festivalzentrum im Palais Attems

The transdisciplinary cultural association Tortuga and the print room initiative Risograd demonstrate how dreams can be printed in the courtyard of the festival centre: you can design your own prints and try out a variety of printing techniques under supervision.

Drop a political manifesto over the city? Publish a comic you’ve drawn? Determine what’s in the newspaper yourself? Today, hardly anyone sees producing and disseminating printed matter as something you can do yourself.

The two Graz-based collectives Risograd and Tortuga, however, see this practice as a way of satisfying political and aesthetic needs. The focus of “Druck[t]raum” is on self-made magazines – “zines”. They offer scope for dealing with different topics, collective production methods, design experiments, free reproduction, and dissemination.

The workshop on Friday starts with a discussion on concepts. The aim is to collect or create text and image contributions, print them, give them a screen-print cover and bind them up in a zine. On all three days, you can try out all of these techniques to your heart’s desire: from simple stamp printing to a complete zine. You are welcome to bring along your own image and text material – let your imagination run free. However, Tortuga and Risograd invite you to explore dreams, those states in which the brain talks indiscriminately of what was, what is and what may be.
