Featuring print, textiles, video, sculpture and photography, Uprooted Visions at Edinburgh Printmakers is the culmination of a series of residencies hosted across five European printmaking studios, including Edinburgh Printmakers, which supported artists whose practices have been disrupted by displacement and migration. For some, including several Ukrainian artists, the experience is more recent, while others have developed their careers over decades in their new home countries.

Now living in the UK, Ireland and across Europe, 30 artists from around the world, including Syria, Ukraine, Bosnia Herzegovina, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Kosovo and Turkey, have created new works exploring themes such as the concept of home, the enduring experience of war, the nature of moving across borders and changing self-identity.

The Creative Europe-funded project also offered month-long residencies at print studios in Amsterdam, Cork, Ljubljana in Slovenia and Odense in Denmark, providing space to experiment, work with studio technicians and discover new techniques.

The Printmaker’s shop supports the Own Art finance scheme, which makes purchasing works more affordable by spreading the cost over 10 months at 0% interest.
