Between Art and Mass Communication: Edvard Munch and PrintmakingThe aim of this conference is to investigate these important ideas in depth and to evaluate Munch’s achievement in the area of printmaking from various angles.

1. Mass media and mass distribution;
2. Reproduction and repetition;
3. Audience and reception;
4. Social criticism;
5. The art market;
6. The culture and practice of print workshops.
