About NIELS BORCH JENSEN GALLERY & EDITIONS (DK/DE)
BORCH Editions was established in Copenhagen in 1979 and has since then established a position as one of the world’s leading producers and publishers of graphic art. Among their collaborations with internationally renowned artists are Georg Baselitz, Olafur Eliasson, Per Kirkeby, Julie Mehretu, and Tal R. Since 1999, BORCH Editions have presented the results of their collaborations in their Berlin gallery. The Copenhagen exhibition space BORCHs Butik was subsequently opened in 2014.
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 print shop as it is one of the most popular techniques among the 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 artist, Niels Borch Jensen and his team of master-printers: Mette Ulstrup and Julie Dam. The collaboration usually continues over many years and projects, allowing the artists to build up a comprehensive body of printed works that explores various aspects of the medium and ties in closely with the rest of their oeuvre.

The gallery space in Berlin was subsequently opened in 1999. In their current space in Galerienhaus they present the published print projects done in collaboration with both emerging young artists and leading contemporary artists.
In the summer of 2014, we opened BORCHs Butik in the heart of Copenhagen. Here we show a wide selection of works from the print shop.
For CHART 2017, BORCH Editions presented recent print projects by Robert McNally, Virginia Overton, Matt Saunders, and Thomas Scheibitz as well as a large-scale monotype by Stanley Whitney. Furthermore, a selection of classic editions by established international artists showcased the Copenhagen print studio’s wide variety of printing techniques.
