KKV Graphicworkshop & KKV Sculptureworkshop Monumental Malmö

all graphic print-technologies






The Graphic Workshop and Sculpture Workshop Monumental of the Swedish Artist Collective Workshop (Konstnärernas Kollektiva Verkstad) offer room for professional experimentation. The Graphic Workshop offers good opportunities for the tech- niques intaglio, flatscreen and relief printing (etching, aquatint, mezzotint, screen printing, woodcut, linocut, lithography, offset printing, photography exposure and letterpress printing). Being a workplace of professional artists, you find everything there to combine artistic graphic techniques with different materials and tools which surround us in our daily lives. The integration of materials like glass, concrete or iron as well as digital techniques might lead to developing absolutely new products, artistic work or new media. This can be realized thanks to the Sculpture Work- shop Monumental which is situated in the same building.
The Graphic Workshop Malmö was founded in 1973 and is self-governed by its 125 members all of whom are artists. The municipality of Malmö supports the workshop financially.
The Sculpture Workshop Monumental was established in 1973 as a foundation. Today, about 300 artists and friends are its members.
At the Sculpture Workshop Monumental, you find extensive workshops for woodworking, pottery, enamel, glass art, metal casting and metalworking as well as modelmaking. Big and small works of art on the highest level can be produced thanks to the workshop’s equipment consisting of machines, kilns and extensive workspace. In order to realize projects, extra rooms can be rented. Next to the workshops, there are the exhibition rooms of the art association of the Swedish region Skåne and a private gallery called „Abandoned“.
