&soWalter (usw.) is a small printing studio in Stavanger, Norway. The studio was established in 2015 and is named after Walter Benjamin, the inventor of mechanical reproduction of artworks. We are printing on an EZ570e, currently with these colors: black, blue, red, green, yellow, fluo pink, fluo orange and metallic gold. Most of our work is self-initiated, but we do a lot of commissioned work too – for other artists, designers and our visual communication clients and research objects. In addition, we organize workshops and invite artists to print sessions.
&soWalter is part of the coworking space Consulatet (together with silk screen printing artist DridMachine and others).
Together with Anki from Pamflett and Bergen Art Book Fair, and Jessica from Hverdag Books, Benjamin from &soWalter founded Norsk Risoforening (Norwegian Riso Association) in 2018.
