A jam session is, in essence, a casual encounter of musicians with affinity to each other that improvise music for their own enjoyment. With the spirit of a jam printing session, artists Ronald de Bloeme, Wernher Bouwens, Christoph Ruckhäberle, Thomas Siemon and Edouard Wolton got together during several weeks of 2014 in the Carpe Plumbum printing workshop in Leipzig, in order to work in this collaborative, intense and original project, Print Jam.
The work of those sessions allowed each author to create a big format xilography (woodcut print) (95×138cm) and 143 collaborative unique xilographic stamps, also on a big format. They also edited a collaborative book of almost 100 pages of which 300 copies edited by Lubok were printed. All the pieces were gathered in an exposition that has already been shown in Leipzig and Barcelona.
Next we'll offer you a selection of images of the creative and production processes with some pages of the Print Jam book. Enjoy!
