Připravily: Tereza Hejmová, VŠUP, ve spolupráci s Komunikačním prostorem Školská 28 a galerií Fotograf.A small Art Book Fair in Prague aims to map the Czech scene of art publications, which have been put out by smaller, independent publishers. At the same time, a space for presentation and the sale of authorial books of contemporary artists, photographers, illustrators and typographers will be created. Visitors will have the chance to view and buy books, fanzines and also smaller publications published in limited editions.
The two-day event will be accompanied by lectures and discussions led by the people involved in the publishing of these publications (publishers, authors, graphic designers…)
Amongst others, the themes will be: the present state of art publications, future perspectives, and the possibilities of electronic publishing.
Our special guest will be Motto Distribution, who will for the two days transplant their Berlin store to Prague. They represent more than 100 small publishers from around the world. Founder Alexis Zavialoff will have a lecture on Friday.
From amongst Czech publishers, we will be presenting Tranzit, Divus, BiggBoss, Komfortmag, Fra, the Moravian Gallery, project Oldschool, Ausdruck Books and others. A selection of authorial books and zines of contemporary artists will be its own separate section.
