While the public discussion seems to be all about the end of print and the rise of the digital, Sven Ehmann will talk about his very personal, lifelong and ongoing passion for print. Drawing from childhood memory, personal projects and professional experience at the intersection between new (internet) and old (print) economy, he will share his experience in researching about contemporary visual culture, developing contents and concepts and turning those into products and experiences.
