… as Europe’s premier event for contemporary artists’ books
and periodicals by artists and art publishers. Featuring 130+ international participants and a series of public programmes: discussions, readings, presentations, performances, and art works that explore the perimeters of today’s art publishing. Admission is free.
In 2015, the focus is again primarily on artists and their artists’ books—as more artists than ever present their current books. Furthermore, Black Palm, Edition Helga Marie Klosterfelde, Little & Large Editions, Galerie Neu / M72, and Motto Books feature artists’ multiples and editions. Artists whose work emanates from the book present special installations and performances as part of I have always imagined that Paradise will be a
kind of library: Susanne Bürner, Anita Di Bianco, Natalie Czech, Dominque Hurth, Ines Lechleitner, Joachim Schmid, Erik Steinbrecher, Jonathan Monk and Elisabeth Tonnard.
The public programmes series ARE YOU FRIENDS WITH BOOKS…? presents lectures, performances, talks, panel discussions and book presentations with Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art: Defne Ayas and Willem de Rooij; frieze d/e: Dominikus Müller and Susanne von Falkenhausen; e-flux journal: Supercommunity mini-symposium with
Julieta Aranda, Ana Texeira Pinto, Matteo Pasquinelli, Anton Vidokle; Asia Art Archive (AAA): Ingrid Chu and Slavs and Tatars; Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin: Lisa Marei Schmidt and Daniela Bystron; Kunstbibliothek Berlin: Dr. Michael Lailach and Céline Duval, and others.
The annual FRIENDS WITH BOOKS POSTER EDITIONS by Berlin artists include Annette Kelm, Michaela Melian, Roman Schramm. 25 of each edition are signed and numbered and benefit Friends with Books at a special offer of 50 €.
