Cherix (Museum of Modern Art) provides an insightful analysis of contemporary printmaking in Print/Out. He describes how artists, artist groups, printers, and publishers-working within roughly the last 20 years-have employed digital technology and exploited essential qualities of printmaking (such as multiplicity and collaboration) in a myriad of ways to produce conceptually rich and technically complex works of art. Specifically, Cherix succintly argues that current forays into printmaking allow artists (Rirkrit Tiravanija and Ai Weiwei, among others) to think through issues pertaining to censorship, copyright, and "relational art..." Extensively illustrated and inventively laid out, this book provides an excellent summation of the current state of printmaking and will prove invaluable to print scholars and scholars of contemporary art...Highly recommended.--J.
