The Midwest Matrix, Genealogy of American Printmaking: Oral History of the Post-World War II Midwest Movement is a 2012 documentary film by Susan Goldman. "Midwest Matrix documents, preserves and disseminates an oral history of the fine art printmaking in the Midwest after 1945. Midwest Matrix is a substantive study of post-WWII printmaking that documents the synergy among Midwest universities, workshops, and their participants. Many of these artists who are now in their eighties and nineties, were able to continue their education through the passing of the GI Bill. This project allows these artists, many whom have never before been filmed, to provide accounts of their experiences, their training and their involvement with the development of print departments and studios, their art, and encounters with students"-- Container.
