In this lecture Paul Thompson, artist educator and Doctoral Research Student, explores the impact digital culture, Web 2.0 and Online Networking, an area we might collectively define as e-culture, is having on the practice, modes of collaboration, distribution and consumption within contemporary printmaking. Discussing how these developments have seen the creation and promotion of new affinity groupings or engaged networks, which have extended our traditional and existing collaborative atelier models. Drawing on primary research, involving a survey of ‘49’ international practitioners together with the comparative analysis of current printmakers networks, such as ‘Inkteraction’, an argument is proposed for an alternative ‘Virtual Atelier’ model, which extends the traditional collaborative model originally conceived in connection with the working practices of S.W. Hayter’s Atelier 17.
