The lithography and silk screen printing workshop provides insights into printed graphic work. Starting with lithography and silk screen printing, students explore the artistic potential of printed graphics reproduction techniques of historical and contemporary relevance. Lithography is the oldest flat screen printing process taught at the academy and figures in modern design language through its close relation to freehand drawing. Silk screen printing is the youngest of the print graphics techniques and besides manual procedures also allows the use of new media. As advances in commercial print methods were always linked to the development of graphic arts, knowledge of their interdependencies also allows students to grasp the perceptive precepts of modern print media.

Technical-artisan skills and knowledge of artistic-theoretical lithography and silk screen printing are taught in introductory and advanced courses in the workshop. Students are also supported in executing their own print projects. Print graphics is not only regarded in the light of a traditional method of reproduction, but also as an inspiring work process, which allows students to develop their own creative approach.
