Sensing Beyond Seeing, in Celebrating Print Vol.2 No.2

KADS New York is pleased to announce the fall issue of Celebrating Print, a publication that covers fine art print and printmaking in Central and Eastern Europe.

In the freshly published issue, art historian Julia Meszaros offers a survey of modern Hungarian printmaking, which encompasses early forms of narrative works as well as the radical trends of 1980s and 1990s, when artists defied the medium’s traditions by experimenting with Xerox technology and other devices. Curator Barbora Kundracikova explores the aesthetic nature of prints in Sensing Beyond Seeing by applying theory to the works of Alena Kucerova, Marie Blabolilova and Romana Rotterova—three Czech printmakers who continuously translate their personal experiences into digestible pictorial content. The October issue also delves into the realm of fantasy art, a phenomenon typically associated with Central and Eastern European print. Art historian Eva Trojanova’s Carousels of Life focuses on the expansive oeuvre of Slovak artist Vladimir Gazovic and his “efforts to reveal the truth” by combining astute observations of reality with phantasmal motifs. Fluctuations between dreams and reality find a fixed state in the works of Kamila Stanclova, another Slovak artist interviewed by editor Katerina Kyselica. Croatian artist Ana Vivoda, whose project Traces is presented to shed light on the printmaking process, reflects on her interactions with the environment as she marks the matrix.
