MISS READ: The Berlin Art Book Fair 2015 will take place on June 26 to 28 and will bring together a wide selection of the most interesting artist/authors, artist periodicals and art publishers.

Founded in 2009, Miss Read is the oldest active European art book fair and festival, dedicated to creating a context for public discourse around artists’ books, conceptual publications and to community-building. Featuring 130+ international participants, it will be accompanied by MISS READ STAGE, a series of lectures, discussions, book launches and workshops exploring the boundaries of contemporary publishing and the possibilities of the book.

In conjunction, the third Conceptual Poetics Day will explore the imaginary border between visual art and literature.
