Our mission is to reinvigorate the public's interest in the fine art print and the process of printmaking in Central and Eastern Europe, map its evolution, and engage members of the global printmaking community in the discussion of the medium's contemporary practice.
CELEBRATING PRINT MAGAZINE was a biannual full-color magazine on fine art print and printmaking in Central and Eastern Europe. We worked with curators, scholars, master printers, and printmakers to explore historic, modern and contemporary prints and printmaking practice throughout the region. The publication featured original writings, including articles, essays, projects and interviews, accompanied by high quality, full-color reproductions and photo stories.
The publication has been discontinued in its printed format. The complete series includes six issues (including one double issue) in Vol.1-4, mapping the printmaking practice in Central and Eastern Europe:
Vol. 1 No. 1, published October 2015
Vol. 2 No. 1, published April 2016; No. 2, published October 2016
Vol. 3 No. 1, published April 2017; No. 2, published October 2017
Vol. 4 No 1-2 (a double issue), published November 2018
CELEBRATING PRINT keeps the online presence.
CELEBRATING PRINT has been founded as an information platform and invaluable resource for collectors, scholars, and print enthusiasts to explore and learn about Central and Eastern European print culture – as well as discover or re-discover artists and their works as they relate to the region and the global art scene.
