Video about Ilkka’s letterpress by talented Marko Rantanen, 2021
Manus hand + festus tangible = manifestum, declaration
Manifesto.21 champions handcrafting and analogue printing using contemporary art as a way to visualise the disappearing tradition of the letterpress method and the power of words. The exhibition presents artwork by various artists made with an old letterpress machine.
The letterpress method is an old, endangered method formerly employed in the printing of avantgarde posters. Now, the artists of the Manifesto.21 exhibition showcase how this invaluable tradition can be preserved, made visible, and even be renewed for the present day.
