Miss Read 2016 @ AdK, Jun 10 -12

8 June 2016

Miss Read: The Berlin Art Book Fair is on at the German capitals’s Akademie der Künste (AdK), running June 10 to 12.

Returning to the aforementioned cultural institute for its 2016 edition, the event showcases a wide range of the “most interesting artists/authors, artist periodicals and art publishers” —including the likes of Broken Dimanche Press, Book Works, Girls Like Us, Montez Press, Sternberg Press, and artist Martin Kohout’s TLTRPreß.

There will also be a series of lectures, discussions, book launches and workshops exploring “the boundaries of contemporary publishing and the possibilities of the book” with an opening party on June 10. A closing party is scheduled for June 12 at ACUD, and Conceptual Poetics Day will also run in conjunction with the fair on June 11 to “explore the imaginary border between visual art and literature”.

Other publishers taking part worth looking out for include White Fungus, X Marks the Bökship, MIT Press, and n.b.k and many more.

See the Miss Read website for details.**

Index Art Book Fair, Feb 4 – 7

2 February 2016

Index Art Book Fair will take place in the Museo Jumex building of Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico running from February 4 to 7. 

The book fair brings together publishers from Mexico, South America and Europe. Over 70 participate over the long weekend, which coincides with the Material Art Fair 2016 also in Mexico City, for which aqnb has made some recommendations. Index works to draw attention to publications relating to contemporary art that lack big distribution and platform or space.

The Museo Jumex will host a large collection of printed matter and editorial projects, which, collaboratively –in relation to this fair –and otherwise look more closely at experimental ways to edit, making public and print. A programme of live events and panel discussions, such as ‘Acts of Publication’ and ‘Print as Matter’ will also take place over the course of the fair.

Publishers presenting their wares at Index Art Book Fair include White Fungus, Sternberg-Press, Semiotexte, Onomatopee, Mousse Magazine, Book Works, Banner Repeater, Afterall, Fuck Zinez and Laca (Los Angeles Contemporary Archive).

See the Index Art Book Fair webpage for details and the full programme**
