IAPMA – On the Paper Road
Papier ist elementares Material für KünstlerInnen weltweit, ganz gleich ob es von Hand geschöpft oder maschinell hergestellt ist. Das große Spektrum an Möglichkeiten, Papier in allen drei Dimensionen zu verwenden wird durch den fachlichen Austausch schnell und leicht erfahrbar.
Gespräche, Informationsaustausch und gemeinsames Lachen verbinden über viele Grenzen hinweg.
Hier das Statement von IAPMA auf der Webseite:
The International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists (IAPMA) is the world leading organisation for paper artists. It was founded in 1986 in Düren, Germany, when paper as an art medium was far less well-known than it is today. While paper history and production are one facet of the Association's activities, the central focus is paper role as art form and as a contemporary artistic medium.
The Association main objective is to facilitate an international exchange of artistic ideas and share information about hand papermaking and paper art. IAPMA aims to provide the opportunity for members to work together, collaborate on artistic projects and exhibitions, share solutions to technical problems, explore different paper-related cultural backgrounds, and encourage new approaches to paper arts. To this end, each year two Bulletins and four newsletters are produced: the newsletters provide information about exhibitions, publications, projects and techniques involving paper; the Bulletins are professionally produced magazines with handmade paper covers and samples which feature individual artists, papermakers and their ideas. All members are invited to share information with other members through the newsletters and Bulletins.
Currently, the International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists has 470 members from 43 different countries.
