Topo Copy presenteert: Knust, de pioniers van de risodruk [docu] + Kleurbekennen [talk]

Geprikkeld door de documentaire Knust - the pioneers of Riso print — waarin het verhaal wordt verteld van het Nijmeegs kunstenaarsinitiatief Knust, dat ontstond binnen de kraakbeweging in de jaren ‘80 — besloot het Gents printcollectief Topo Copy een screening te organiseren in Gent. Topo Copy maakt van de gelegenheid gebruik om aansluitend met andere lokale printstudio’s en publiek na te denken over een aantal topics in een open gesprek, vertrekkend vanuit vragen die spelen binnen het eigen collectief / atelier.

Een tafel met daarop een selectie publicaties en andere printgerelateerde projecten die thematisch aansluiten op het programma zorgt voor het ideale voer tot napraten.

Vrijdag 23 april 2021
19:30 deuren + selectie publicaties
20:00 DOCU: Knust, de pioniers van de Risodruk, 30’
20:30 TALK: kleurbekennen (3 topics)

DOCU — Knust - the pioneers of Riso print, 30’

20:00
De documentaire, geregisseerd door Ivana Smudja, vertelt het verhaal over het Nijmeegs kunstenaarsinitiatief Knust Press, de eigenzinnige drukwerkplaats en uitgeverij die in de jaren ‘80 ontstond tijdens de roerige tijden van de kraakbeweging. In de film volgen we kunstenaar Charlotte Ager tijdens haar ‘artist in residency’ bij Knust Press in het pand van EXTRAPOOL midden in het centrum van Nijmegen. Interviews met voormalige leden van het kunstenaarscollectief geven de ontwikkeling van KNUST vanaf de jaren ’80 tot nu toe weer. Beeldend kunstenaar Gijs Frieling vertelt hoe hij door zijn bij KNUST gemaakt boek internationaal doorbrak. Kunstverzamelaar Hans Kaaijk vertelt enthousiast over het belang van de bijzondere KNUST uitgaves.
Regie: Ivana Smudja / productie: Ellen Kocken, DZIGA

TALK — KLEURBEKENNEN

Topics:

1 — Drukkerij van het verzet anno 2020
Zijn we ons als print ateliers bewust van de kracht van print? Vinden we het nodig om actief sociaal geëngageerd te zijn of is het ok om gewoon ‘mooie’ dingen te willen maken? Verhef je je eigen stem soms en/of wiens stem versterk je? Ga je bewust om met vooropgestelde waarden en normen? Neem je een standpunt in over bepaalde topics zoals duurzaamheid/ecologie - diversiteit - mensenrechten - religie - ideologie - politiek… en hoe activeer je dat? BEKEN JE KLEUR?

2 — Hoe je gedragen als artistiek collectief in een geld gedreven maatschappij?
Ben je als artistiek collectief non-profit en is een creatief bureau profit? Waar trek je de lijn en (hoe vaak) ga je erover? Wanneer wel, wanneer niet? Hanteer je maatstaven of werk je intuïtief? Hoe hou je een werking (vaak met weinig middelen) duurzaam en zorg je intern voor een faire verloning? Hoe menselijk benader je de werking? Hoe goed zijn we zelf in het zorgen voor faire verloning naar betrokken kunstenaars (fair practice)? Hanteer je eenzelfde prijszetting voor iedereen of werk je gedifferentieerd, ...speel je soms voor Robin Hood?

3 — Inzetten op een nabij netwerk, … beter een goede buur dan een verre vriend. —
Hoe maken we van Gent een interessant speelveld waarin print-ateliers elkaar kennen en versterken?
