The Museum für Gestaltung Zürich is mounting a survey of traditional printing processes, based around work by the artist Gunther Keusen. The materials and requirements of these reproduction techniques are explained. Keusen's works on paper represent a broad cross-section of the field known as printed graphics: the work covers a wide spectrum of processes, from etchings via woodcuts and aquatints to lift ground etching (reservage). All these works are evidence of the artist's exploration of the stubborn grammar of seeing, but at the same time a veritable compendium of the expressive possibilities of a medium that has lost none of its fascination through the current dominance of the digital image media.
