The 13th Biennial demonstrated an interesting turn to traditional printmaking techniques and brought artists’ private mythologies to the fore. Drawing began to overrule photography and classical techniques started to supersede large formats. The nostalgically labelled “old printmaking” came to life in the form of smaller print formats, bound into books or kept in folios. The critics highlighted Finnish and Swedish printmaking, which was dominated by landscape with a touch of mysticism and romance. This Biennial indicates that the graphic arts of the late 1980s underwent a nostalgic turn, complemented by the exhibition of Božidar Jakac.
