Workplace

The extensive workshop of the Frans Masereel Centrum has six professionally equipped workshops: intaglio, screen printing, relief printing , lithography, typography and digital output (risograph , laser cut, printers, ...). The residency is aimed at getting resident artists able to work as independently as possible. The studio coordinators are in the care of the necessary advice and support.

The focus of a residency at Frans Masereel Centrum lays mainly on creation, experimentation in the studio and on research into the position of printed matter in relation to other visual arts. The artist is challenged to place print in relation to his own artistic oeuvre. It is a tangible study of the added value of printed matter within the artistic process as well as the possibilities that printing applications offer to translate substantive and thematic questions.
