Nina Bondeson (SWE) :To be print potent - a transintellectual suggestion
about the ENDEGRA (European Network for Development and Education in Graphic) .

An overriding textual attitude holds a strong hegemonical position, not only in contemporary art, but in all of society. It cannot be disregarded. But it can, and it should, be opposed. To empower a true diversity in art, and enable relevant acting spaces, we need to articulate, not only personal artistic experiences, but also the idea of what art is and what function it has.
