In La Cambre’s Printmaking Department, the focus of studies is the development of a personal and innovative artistic practice through print. Making and thinking are activated simultaneously. The acquisition of printmaking skills as means of expression (woodcut, etching, drypoint, aquatint, lithography, screenprinting) is inseparable from the embracing of print as an open and expanded field of research. The Printmaking department draws its strength from the diversity of its students. Each one of them is encouraged to develop his.her own creative potential and critical discourse. Cooperative mechanisms are activated and encouraged. Students are the printmaking studios’ co-administrators. They participate in its daily managing, and to publications, exhibitions, and their diffusion.

The Printmaking BA cycle programme aims to help students develop their creative personality through the acquisition of printmaking technical skills and the use of traditional techniques in a prospective and experimental spirit. Tradition is used not to perpetuate what is already known, but to raise new questions and generate new practices. The Printmaking MA cycle programme aims to confront students with a broader view of print as an expanding field of research. Contextualisation, distribution, economic and social relevance, are all subject to discussion and experimentation. MA students are encouraged to create their own networks of production, collaboration and dissemination.

The Printmaking teaching staff are practising artists, thinkers and makers, all conscious of the importance of print as a field of research, but also of their responsibility in providing tomorrow’s creators with the adequate set of tools to make/think/link in a fragile world. Visiting international artists, curators, writers, publishers, musicians and lecturers significantly enrich the opportunities for dialogue, reflection and research. Cross-disciplinary classes and workshops, Erasmus exchanges, critical seminars, residencies, exhibitions and publications, help the students consciously develop a body of work directly in tune with their own concerns.

La Cambre’s Printmaking Department, together with CSM UAL and RCA (London) KASKA (Antwerp) HGB (Leipzig) et KABK (The Hague), is a member of the Printmaking Union.
