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.
