Printing Matter – Thematic Residency at Skaftfell Center for Visual Art

Printing Matter is a two-week thematic residency with an intensive program for 8-10 artists, focusing on printmaking and artist book making. The Thematic Residency aims to create a platform for exchange, discussion, and collaboration amongst fellow artists from various disciplines, who share a professional interest in the topic, both on a practical and a conceptual level, and who wish to deepen their knowledge and expertise.

The program is developed and guided by the Danish artist and graphic designer Åse Eg Jørgensen. It includes group workshops, independent research and practice and an informal final presentation in Skaftfell’s project space. Working facilities and printmaking equipment will be made available through a collaboration with the Technical Museum of East Iceland in Seyðisfjörður.

Skaftfell is founded in memory of the artist Dieter Roth (1930-1998) who lived and worked in Seyðisfjörður for periods of time during the last decade of his life. In Skaftfell you can find many of his book works and prints on display.
