Druckstock zu "Hockender"

Since 2016, a comprehensive collection of Matthias Mansen's print matrices is in the collection of the Städtisches Kunstmuseum Spendhaus Reutlingen, covering his most important projects from the period between 1983 and 2011.

"For working on the printing block, he uses everything 'that can be used to make a hole, a scratch, or a line': knives, drills, etching needles, saws, files, and sculptor's tools like chisels, gouges, and mallets." (Eckhart Gillen, in: Matthias Mansen - Land und See, Mannheim, Hamburg, Chemnitz 2007)
