The Industry Museum has a tradition of oral history projects and preserves interviews with people from various graphics sub-sectors: both recent interviews (2017-2019) and those from the project “Impressions. The Ghent printing industry in the spotlight” (1988-1989).
These sources offer an insight into the working conditions, technical innovations and various evolutions in the profession.
