Strike While the Ink Is Hot III
STRIKE WHILE THE INK IS HOT! III HISTORY OF POLITICAL PRINTMAKING By Kate Laster
This online lecture + image workshop class dove into the radical history of political printmaking and graphics focusing on BIPOC, women, queer artists & activists.
We looked at artwork discussing fascism, 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 explored range from Lithography, Offset, Relief, Screen, Etching and Risograph.
The class is a choose your own adventure model: with students listening to recordings and meeting in person. Part lecture and workshare. As an educator, I focus on accessibility and dismantling structural inequity in the arts through donation-based art history+theory classes that I create original curriculums for.
