Fine Art Printing at Bentlage


The old farmstead of Kloster Bentlage, known as the "Ökonomie", provides an ideal open space for bold new ideas in the realm of art and culture, The atmosphere, often described by visitors as inspiring, offers a unique opportunity for regional, transregional and international encounters. 
Over the years, graphic art and graphic prints have become an increasing focus of activity in Bentlage; since 1998 Druckvereinigung Bentlage (Bentlage Print Society) has operated a workshop for artistic print techniques in a former farmhouse. Workshops and symposia are regularly organized, in which Kloster Bentlage invites artists from a wide variety of countries to gather here and to live and work together. The works produced on this basis are regularly exhibited in both Bentlage and at other locations in Germany and abroad under the title of "Bentlage Edition".
Courses for amateurs are offered in the fields of graphic art and graphic prints, paper processing, artist books and hand-press prints.
