Edition/Basel is a 12-day program for artists working in intaglio, relief, lithography and letterpress techniques at the Druckwerk Printmaking Studio in central Basel, Switzerland. The program is an opportunity for art making and for cultural exchange through a shared interest in the graphic arts. Started in 2012 by Megan Adie from the United States, and joined in 2013 by Margarit Lehmann from Switzerland, the program has hosted artists from many countries including Switzerland, the United States, Germany, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Norway, Denmark, Japan, India and Cuba. Each session has a theme, which is chosen collaboratively and interpreted individually by the artists, with an exhibition presented at the end of the period.
