Aga Lab is a laboratory for artists, designers and photographers who want to experiment with graphic techniques in the broadest sense. Initiated in 1958 as graphic workshop Aga Lab has grown into a well-equipped studio, equipped with a wide range of facilities: (textile) screen printing, (photo) etching, lithography, letterpress printing, fine art print, analogue darkroom and risograph printing.

Aga Lab transfers its carefully accumulated knowledge of techniques and encourages exchanges and innovation in the field to the artists. For instance research into the use of organic inks and colours extracted from plants in the courtyard garden. In addition, the artists in residence program offers international artists and designers to explore various graphic and crossover techniques in ink, colour and image.

Aga Lab wants to enthuse new target groups for creative craftsmanship and organizes master classes, workshops, lectures and presentations.


The artist donates one work and, when interested, can present his/hers work through an exhibition at the Studio.
