The EDITION HOHES UFER AHRENSHOOP was founded in 1998 as a joint project by the Neues Kunsthaus Ahrenshoop and the Künstlerhaus Lukas of the foundation Kulturfonds.
From 1994 onwards, the Künstlerhaus Lukas and the Neues Kunsthaus Ahrenshoop have been cooperating in the organisation of exhibitions on various topics, contemporary artists’ books and book objects, the connection between literature, fine art and music, and as a new topic dance.
EDITION publishes original graphic books and book objects, catalogues
accompanying the exhibitions (the responsibility for catalogues falls
either to one house alone or both houses share responsibility), and
collections of the works of holders of scholarship.
Since the Künstlerhaus Lukas was taken over by Künstlerhaus Ahrenshoop e.V., the works of the scholarship holders have been the focus of these documentations and promote international networking in Northern Europe.
The jointly developed and produced original graphic book objects have repeatedly been purchased by renowned collections, including the Württembergische Landesbibliothek, the Deutsches Literaturarchiv in Marbach, the Herzog-August-Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel, and can be found in the collection of Akka and Wulf D. von Lucius.
The EDITION HOHES UFER AHRENSHOOP participated in the International Frankfurt Book Fair for 10 years. The works are permanently on display in exhibitions at the Neue Kunsthaus Ahrenshoop and can also be viewed in a personalised presentation.
