Itinerary 1: Printing techniques
A roundup of techniques, materials and printing supports to show all the beauty of producing a handcrafted work: from cyanotype to monotype, passing through Suminagashi art and the mix between 3D printing and analog cubic printing.
Itinerary 2: Digital
The relationship between analogue and digital and the way in which the balance between these two concepts is defined is a crucial theme within the printing processes; from the first GIFs with the Giphoscope, to artificial intelligence via 3D printing, some studies have proposed a new way of seeing printing techniques, interpreting the Print Parade in a digital key.
Itinerary 3: Urban space
Some initiatives go beyond the walls of the studios, colonizing parts of the city or addressing the relationship between graphics and urban space
Itinerary 4: Society
Printing and, more generally, visual communication become an opportunity to address environmental and social issues
Itinerary 5: Docks Dora
It was one of the hubs of the evening of May 9, bringing together 13 events that ranged from photography, artificial intelligence and craftsmanship, curated in collaboration with the Docks Torino Dora Cultural Association.
