In this encounter, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh and Michelle Harewood present the key aspects of the exhibition From Posada to Isotype, from Kollwitz to Catlett, curated by both, in a survey on graphic art’s potential during historical avant-garde movements. The conversation touches on issues such as the development and exchange between different print media — woodcuts, wood engravings, linocut and lithography — which, during the first half of the twentieth century and at odds with its purportedly obsolete nature, served as a platform to vindicate and mobilise a broad number of international art movements.
