From the organizer

Co-Presented With The San Francisco Public Library, Berlin-based graphic artist Gwenael Rattke (AIR '16) presents his recent publication, San Francisco Reverberation, which was produced in part while in residence at Headlands in 2016. Hand collaged and screen-printed, each book in Rattke's edition is a unique object that draws inspiration and research from San Francisco's queer and underground zine cultures of bygone decades. Rattke explains the techniques and processes he used to create San Francisco Reverberation, while discussing his choice to adapt old print strategies to contemporary realities, and the ambivalence inherent in romanticizing the past. Following the program, all are invited to walk to one of the Tenderloin's remaining local queer bars, the Gangway, for further conversation.

Presented by Headlands Center for the Arts
