THE A/C.H. COLLABORATION PROGRAM

THE A/C.H. COLLABORATION PROGRAM

THE A/C.H. COLLABORATION PROGRAM
Established in 2020 with the mission to support artists the collaboration program serves as a curated platform for internationally recognized and top emerging contemporary artists to seamlessly translate their work through an alternate media. A/C.H. was founded by Asa and Calle Henzel, owners of HENZEL STUDIO.

'Henzel Studio is built on a foundation of strong relationships with world-renowned artists. To give back to the community, we created 'A/C.H.' a program developed primarily to support emerging artists (with completed notable solo shows and fair booths or similar important cultural actions). The program gives invited emerging artists the opportunity and flexibility to experiment within a new discipline, to collaborate in unexpected ways and connect with the public in new channels'.
- Asa Henzel

Calle Henzel set up his first factory in 1999, transitioning his fine art approach into the age old craft of the weaver, reinventing rug making and bringing new approaches, materials and techniques to the industry. Together with Joakim Andreasson, curator for Henzel’s artist program, he has collaborated with over thirty international leading and influential artists and foundations, including Nan Goldin, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Jonathan Horowitz, Helmut Lang, Marilyn Minter, Tony Oursler, Jack Pierson, Richard Prince, Anselm Reyle, Juergen Teller, Mickalene Thomas, Lawrence Weiner, Andy Warhol & Tom of Finland.



A/C.H. is part of Henzel Art & Design Group, a family-run group, established 1999. Henzel strives to ensure the long-term development of each of its studios in keeping with their legacy, creativity, identity and expertise. Each of them is autonomous but has the same overall goals. They co-exist with each other, leading to unpredictable resonances such as cultural and artistic intersections.
