Over the last 15 years, Gfeller and Hellsgård have been running a silkscreen workshop & Graphic design studio. Inside this atelier, the two regularly join forces with artists and designers to create limited edition, hand printed artist books. It was from this publishing studio foundation, that together they spawned Bongout Gallery. Here they showcase not only the original artworks within the printed catalogues, but give rise to a platform of dialogue and collaboration between artists and designers.
Bongout has matured from a small studio into a broad interactive network, which has been a springboard for visionary ideas. This is a community that supports exploration in visual and non-visual art, such as music, album covers, posters, motion graphics, video, performance, and installation. The works reflect Bongout and Bongout reflects the work. Join us as we build bridges that expand past the confines of contemporary art.
Bongout’s silkscreened books & posters are collected by institutions across the globe, including MOMA NY, MOMA SF, Art Institute of Chicago, Harvard University Fine Art’s Library, Smith Collage, UCLA, Musee d’Art Moderne et Contemporain Strasbourg, and Yale University.
