About the exhibition

In 1985, at the Graz-based company Schilcher & Sohn KG, an in-house production line was created in the relevant department for screen printing, and the working of wood, metal and synthetics. In this way, more than 500 editions were produced of both domestic and international artists, which form the core of the collection of the Edition Artelier. As early as 1998, the Neue Galerie Graz in conjunction with the Galerie & Edition Artelier GmbH presented parts of the editions that had been published until then, in a comprehensive exhibition mounted in the Künstlerhaus Graz. In gratitude for this cooperation, the Artelier gifted a bundle of editions to the Neue Galerie Graz. In 2016, the Edition Artelier ended the production and publishing of editions. So as to guarantee the continuity of the serial art created over 30 years and the documentation of the cultural-historical work of the Edition Artelier, the Artelier Collection GmbH, together with other owners of the artworks, handed over selected objects from this art and documentation collection to the Neue Galerie Graz in the form of a donation made in 2015. The museum will acknowledge this generous gift in 2019 with an exhibition, which will explore, in particular, the significance of serial art, the essence of an ‘art [form] without a unique work’, in the context of such terms as original and copy.
