The aim of the (very vibrant) museum is to give visitors an insight into the three traditional printing techniques: stone lithography, woodcut and etching. In addition to its exhibition and mediation activities, however, it is above all the production of high-quality editions that makes the museum an internationally renowned partner. Since 2004, for example, artists such as Hermann Nitsch, Markus Lüpertz and Georg Baselitz have regularly printed with Markus Gell.
I, too, am united by an intensive collaboration. On the one hand, I use the workshop for the production of my own works (-> Spam / Book of Spams), on the other hand, I have been looking after the museum as a designer from the very beginning. In addition to the appearance and numerous invitation cards, four publications have been produced so far. The current highlight is the catalogue for the exhibition Works on Paper by the Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota, who created one of her famous installations on site in summer 2020.
