About the edition
This print was created by P. Staff and produced in DCA Print Studio as part of 2020 Editions: a portfolio of prints created to mark an extraordinary, challenging year, and to support DCA's recovery from a crisis that has gripped the entire cultural sector.
As the UK-wide lockdown that began in March 2020 drew to a close, we invited a group of artists who had participated in our programme to submit work to be developed with our team in DCA Print Studio and included in a portfolio. Some had worked with us recently; others had taken part in projects soon after we opened in 1999, but all of them gave their time and work generously in support of DCA, and we are incredibly grateful to them.
The project came with some built-in specifications – shape, size, edition number – but the remarkable diversity of the finished works eloquently reflects the range of our programme, and the possibilities of working with our Print Studio.
The print I have made for DCA's edition is a two colour, screen printed poster to accompany my exhibition The Prince of Homburg, which took place from June to September in 2019. The poster's design combines the format of an imagined 1970s theatrical playbill, an archival movie poster and style of leftist design co-operatives such as the The Detroit Printing Co-op, who produced tens of thousands of leftist books, pamphlets, and posters from 1970 to 1980.
