Following the principles of The Surrealist and their way to move around collaboration, playfulness and artistic freedom, the final goal of the workshop is the creation of a collective fillustrated fanzine, written and screenprinted by the participants during the day. Participants will start building a story by playing a round of “Consequences”, a game loved by the surrealists, in which players write in turns on a sheet of paper, fold it to cover their part of the writing, and then pass it to the next player who continues the story, and so on. Each participant will then illustrate one sentence of the story, and, following a technical imprint about screenprint and the preparation of the screens, will hand print it in one color onto paper. Printing will then be followed by the binding of all the artworks into a collaborative fanzine.
The workshop will be in English.
