The Print Association works closely with the Kloster Bentlage , an important center of contemporary art in the Münsterland region, whose premises we use and which provides us with critical staff and logistical support. Many of our projects are possible only through this cooperation.
For more than 30 years, the Förderverein Kloster Bentlage e.V., (Society for the Promotion of Bentlage Monastery) has overseen the utilization of the Monastery complex as a cultural center, and it is thus an important partner of ours. Financially and organizationally it supports projects of ours such as artists’ working visits, exhibitions, workshops, and other events.
We are also supported by the Förderverein Kloster Bentlage e.V., (Foundation for the Promotion of Bentlage Monastery). With its financial assets, the foundation subsidizes cultural programs, preservation of historical monuments, and nature conservation.
The scholarship program of the Förderverein Kloster Bentlage e.V., (Aldegrever Society of Münster) supports young printmakers. Recipients are given the opportunity to have residencies in various workshops and studios in Germany and other European countries. Since 2013, the Print Association has participated in this program, and each year up to three young printmakers spend a month in the Bentlage studios, furthering their training as well as experimenting in printmaking techniques.
