AGA LAB

General information

Brief description of organisation

Founded in 1958, AGA is the oldest graphic studio in Holland. We are a forerunner in environment friendly methods of working and in the use of mixed techniques. The tables and presses have found a place in the spacious and high gym of a former schoolbuilding in the Kolenkitneighborhood in Amsterdam West. Yearly more than 200 artists and designers from national and foreign soil use our non-toxic, well equipped ‘gym’.

Besides studio and creative platform AGA is also a knowledge centre and meeting place. We organize symposia, international exchanges, surprising exhibitions and offer space for research. A unique place where art, craftsmanship and new techniques come together. Besides that, we host two Artists in Residence every month from over the whole world, who create a world-wide exchange of inspiration and techniques.
