Niels Borch Jensen Gallery & Editions
Niels Borch Jensen Editions was established in Copenhagen in 1979 with the aim of bringing emerging and established contemporary artists to work seriously with print media by producing projects that stand as significant, self-contained works of art. Our gallery space in Berlin was subsequently opened in 1999.
The heart of Niels Borch Jensen is the Copenhagen workshop. Most of our editions are in classic intaglio techniques using copper printing plates, but since 1990 photogravure has become an area of special expertise for the printshop as it is one of the most popular techniques amongst our artists. As well as photogravures, we produce woodcuts, offset-lithographs and monotypes.
The print-making, always done in-house at our Copenhagen facilities, is a close collaborative process between the artists, Niels Borch Jensen and his team of master-printers. The collaboration usually continues over many years and projects, allowing the artists to build up a comprehensive body of printed work that explores various aspects of the medium and ties in closely with their oeuvre.
