Photography vs. Serigraphy


Photography offers unique opportunities to take snapshots and present them to the viewer in a playful and artistic way. The spectrum of photography in the 21st century is so rich, from the variety of techniques and themes to ideological disputes, from theories of reflection, thoughts about reality and vision, documentation and staging, ideal and idyll, experiment and tradition, aura and time, uniqueness and reproduction, that it is in no way inferior to the cosmos of meaning of painting. As objective as photography may appear, which apparently manages to depict reality, we as viewers are offered a subjective interpretation of it in photographs. The photographers' gaze and their individual approach create a constant re-creation of what is depicted. The transformative power of photography from one and the same thematic or repeatable moment lies in the individual approach which creates new perspectives for the viewer.


In the printing of art graphics, ink is printed with a squeegee through fine-meshed fabric through the material to be printed - such as paper, textiles, plastic, ceramics, metal, wood or glass. Serigraphs are often produced in a certain number of copies directly in the artist's studio or in collaboration with a screen printing company. Alongside relief printing, intaglio printing and flat printing (offset printing), screen printing is also known as through-printing and is historically regarded as the fourth printing process. Special tools are needed such as a screen printing frame (on which the fabric is stretched), stencil, light source, photo emulsion, coating trough, spatula and squeegee as well as the desired material to be printed.
