Ten-Minute Talks at Print Studio

As part of our exciting new interactive space Print Studio, we are offering a weekly series of short talks focusing on issues related to the medium of print and the sustainability of ideas within the context of modern and contemporary art. During these Ten-Minute Talks, a variety of MoMA staff—from conservators to librarians and archivists—as well as guest artists and educators, share their expertise, offering insight on a variety of topics and a special behind-the-scenes look at MoMA’s engagement with the medium of print and selected Print Studio projects.

Our first Ten-Minute Talk features Karl Buchberg, one of MoMA’s senior conservators, who introduces the Museum’s paper and print conservation lab. Watch the talk and get a tour of the space where he and his MoMA colleagues work each day and see, up close, featured work from the upcoming Print/Out exhibition.

Every week a new video will be posted on the Print Studio blog at MoMA.org/printstudio.
