Seminar was one of many collaborations between Roth and Richard Hamilton. Roth began the process by making one lithographic plate, to which Hamilton responded by adding another layer from a new plate. Neither told the other of their plans or identified their interventions. The exchange eventually resulted in nine plates being used. The artists' working methods were quite distinct. Roth recalled: ‘I’m always so speedy and Richard does things very slowly and thinks things over. It was the best time of my life.’
