The prepress workshop is integrated into the Graphic Art/ Typography/ Photography department, and is also closely connected with project work by the Materialverlag. In the Pre-press workshop, pre-press processes for printing editions are taught. The spectrum includes different printing techniques, such as relief printing, flat screen printing (especially offset), screen printing and digital printing. In connection with independent project work or in collaboration with topic-based seminar projects, students will learn to prepare texts, images and data material for the pre-press stage. The wider aims are to learn to understand print publications as independent artistic media and to be able to execute one’s own artistic projects using appropriate printing techniques.
