The Power of Reproduction

O Poder da Multiplicação

Thirty years after the digital revolution, Die Macht der Vervielfältigung / O Poder da Multiplicação takes a look at contemporary printmaking. Based on Walter Benjamin's question of "technical reproducibility" and the current context of news, fake news, and the post-factual, it presents fourteen artists from Brazil and Germany. The exhibition and accompanying book make printmaking into part of the experience of what constitutes society - technology, spirit, politics - and show that active participation in shaping the world is both possible and necessary. 

Artists: Vera Chaves Barcellos, Tim Berresheim, Marcelo Chardosim, Hélio Fervenza, Hanna Hennenkemper, Olaf Holzapfel, Helena Kanaan, Thomas Kilpper, Flavya Mutran, Ottjörg A.C., Rafael Pagatini, Regina Silveira, Carlos Vergara, Xadalu
