Raubdruckerin is an experimental printmaking project, that uses urban structures like manhole covers, grids, technical objects and other surfaces of the urban landscape, to create unique graphical patterns on streetwear basics, fabrics and paper. These footprints of the city, overlooked little details in our everyday routine, can easily stimulate a new perception to the audience's surroundings when being extracted from its origin and presented in a different context.
Printing outside in the streets, the makers of raubdruckerin are confronted with very fundamental aspects of nature and society. On the one hand flexibiliy is quite important due to unforeseen weather conditons. On the other hand encounters with different cultures, genders and authorities speaking of legal regulations brings back the public discussion of: who actually owns the city? In what way can we take possession of something and use it for our own ideas and business? What does sustainability means to us? And how can we create a more eco-friendly and more human environment? raubdruckerin wants to encourage people to see things different and to be more cautious about the world we live in.
