2015 Lauren Pakradooni in a letter to Barbara Beisinghoff: "My experience in your studio and home was deeply influential, working with you gave me insight into the relationship between life and art, finding a way to enjoy your surroundings while focused on an intensive project. The portfolio of monotypes I made in your studio were an important discovery of color, shape, and composition. The finished prints and experiments informed a shift in the way I work, including new technical practises as well as concepts in my imagery. Your studio is equipped with materials and tools that are professional and well maintained and are able to accommodate a variety of printmaking processes and techniques. A vertical etching tank would be an excellent addition, which would require less maintenance and have more predictable results. A vertical etch tank with edinburgh etch is more safe and contained, less hazardous to people and the environment." August 2015: Lauren Pakradooni made monoprints and gave a sound performance. She and Tegan Emerson (our 7. and 8. artists residency) worked here at the same time.
Gloria Ceballos is our 6. artist in residence. Sie kommt aus Madrid/London März 2015, meißelt Schrift in Trittsteine im Verborgenen Garten und hält einen Vortrag über Nature, Art and Garden.
In August 2013 our 4. artist Paper Buck from California works on his etching triptychon. In summer 2015 Paper came back here with his mother for his solo show in the townhall in Bad Driburg-Dringenberg. 

In July 2014 our 5. artist June Yoon from Brooklyn New York was working here on wood cuts. We stayed in contact with her and saw her in NY in 2016.

The text wandeln is carved into a paving stone of local pink sandstone located on a pathway leading from one of the main entry points to the Lustgarten and is intended to be discovered by the viewer. Because the work is set into the ground the viewer must slow down and perhaps even come to a complete stop in order to read and understand the text.  This deliberate slowing of pace is intended to bring the viewer towards a more peaceful and calm experience of the hidden garden.  When pausing to read the text inscribed in the paving stone the viewer must bow their head as if in prayer or reverence, thus further adding to the feeling that one is entering a special place.  The physical act of bowing in response to wandeln makes the viewer a part of the work itself, in a sense they have been changed by their experience of the work and become part of it.  As an element in the Kunstlerpfad (artists trail) wandeln is an important choice of words because it means not only to walk but also to change or convert and the hope is that people who enter this garden will be changed by their journey through it. 
August 2012: Our 2nd artist Susan Goethel-Campbell from Detroit, Michigan prints from wood. Instead of black like in Detroit she uses bright colours here.

“The Beisinghoff Printmaking Residency is more than just the opportunity to work in a print studio. It provides an intimate setting that ignites the senses. The large garden outside the studio is a blaze of color by mid-summer while the sound of farm animals mingles with church bells throughout the day.  Nestled in the patchwork geometry of the German countryside, the village of Rhoden is a unique place to create work.  You will also gain a sense of German history and culture from living with the Besinghoffs, two extraordinary people who are dedicated to the arts.” Susan Goethel Campbell
