What is Situationism?

What is Situationism?

Psychological theory that started in 1968 at the time when the debate on Person-situation was triggered through a monograph publication by Walter Mischel. It is an approach to art behavior that states that there are no general traits. It holds that behavior is externally influenced by situational factors from environment rather than motivations and internal traits. It thus challenges trait theorists like Raymond B. Cattel and Hans Esyenck. Major movement linked to situationism is Situationist International founded by Asger Jorn.

Monotype

Refers to a printmaking that is made by painting or drawing on a nonabsorbent, smooth surface. Historically, the surface was an etching plate of copper, but these days, the surface can vary from acrylic to zinc or glass. Image is transferred to a sheet of paper where the two are pressed by use of printing press. The process creates a unique print called monotype. The initial pressing removes most of the ink. 

Silkscreen

Silkscreen is a method for making prints using a screen made of silk or some other mesh fabric. The screen is prepared with a substance which only allows the ink forced through it to print in selected areas. Each color used needs a separate screen.

East Indian ink

East Indian ink is a medium made of fine soot, called lampblack, which is combined with water. The carbon molecules make a black, waterproof ink. It has been used in India since the 4th century BC. Artists use the ink for writing, drawing, and painting.
