Self Publish Be Happy

Offprint 2016 @ Tate Modern, May 20 – 22

18 May 2016

Offprint London, an independent art publishing fair is on again at the Tate Modern, opening May 20 and closing May 22.

The fair is free and focusses primarily on photography. It will showcase books, zines, vinyls, posters, prints, websites, magazines, and blogs from over 140 participants. In addition there is an events programme called Making Memeries curated by London-based group Self Publish, Be Happy that considers that sometimes now the act of taking a photo can be enough for the photograph-taker and pulls into question its distribution.

On that note, collaborations, sub-projects and publications we recommend you go and pay extra special attention to are:

Self Publish, Be Happy @ Tate Modern, May 22 – 25

19 May 2015

Self Publish, Be Happy is celebrating its fifth birthday with a project space at London’s Tate Modern from May 22 to 25.

The organisation, founded by Bruno Ceschel in 2010, collects and studies self-published photobooks through a programme of events, workshops, and live on/offline projects. The London-based collection now contains more than 2,000 publications, and exists as both a physical manifestation of a worldwide movement and, as SPBH refers to it, a “call to action”, aiming to inspire visitors to create books through different photographic and printing processes.

The four-day programme, which runs during the Offprint London art publishing fair, includes workshops, presentations and performances by Simon Baker, Curator of Photography at the Tate Modern, Antony Cairns, as well as ‘Selfie Stick Aerobic’ by Arvida Byström and Maja Malou Lyse, ‘The Smoke House’ by Melinda Gibson.
