Mission / Passion?
The Berlin Risofest is the first event to bring together the city’s top Risograph printers, artists and studios, in a day of exhibitions, workshops, performances, booklaunches, DJs and live music.
What is RISOGRAPH?
The Risograph printer is at the forefront of a new creative revolution. Artists and designers all over the world are using this stencil duplicator to spark a DIY renaissance in analogue printing. As a printing method, Riso sits somewhere on the spectrum between screen print and offset lithography, but what sets it apart is the unique aesthetic and highly tactile finish of the prints.
