Aartists working in intaglio, relief, lithography and letterpress techniques will be selected to participate in 2 sessions at the Druckwerk Printmaking Studio in central Basel, Switzerland. Each 12-day program of 10 artists will be shown in public exhibitions at one of two spaces, the Basler Papiermühle Museum, or the Salon Mondial at Atelier Mondial. Exhibition project themes are chosen collaboratively and interpreted individually or collectively by the participants during their time in the workshop.
We encourage our residents to experiment. Is your print work an installation? Does it have another element, like sound, or a performance? Does your piece exist outside the gallery, and move into the city of Basel? We welcome your trials, failures, and curious vision regarding ways of bringing printmaking into the world at large.
Basic materials (ink, tarlatan, rags, etc) are included in the fee. A good selection of paper, linoleum, and other materials is available for purchase directly from the print shop. Limited shared housing is available in the same building as the print studio.
Limited shared accommodation is available in the same building as the print studio. People may also find their own accommodation in the city of Basel.
