Call details:

For the 2021.2 edition, SNAPline seeks to publish creative and critical content around the theme of Private/Public, including but not limited to: written features and visual essays, artist interviews, illustration, poetry, and creative writing.

Community printshops often exist in a realm somewhere between the private and public spheres, accessible to those who make prints and mysterious to those who don’t. An artistic practice in printmaking is rarely private and generally relies on some sort of collaboration or communal resources. Prints are often made in bustling shared studio environments. Artists pour their private selves into their artwork and the public nature of print distributes these multiples far and wide for all to see.
