MISS READ: The Berlin Art Book Fair

MISS READ: The Berlin Art Book Fair takes place this weekend at the Akademie der Künste, and will feature over 200 publishers, artists and authors. Now in it's seventh year, MISS READ is Europe's oldest active Art Book Festival. The event was initiated in 2009 by KW Institute for Contemporary Art, argobooks and artist Michalis Pichler, with a mandate to create "a public meeting place for discourse around artists ́ books, conceptual publications and publishing as practice."

The fair opens on Friday June 10th at 5pm and continues until 9pm, when the opening party takes over. The fair resumes the following day from noon to 7pm, and closes on June 12th. Admission is free.

With a focus this year on Spanish-speaking countries, MISS READ 2016 will be accompanied by series of lectures, discussions, book launches and workshops, exploring the boundaries of contemporary publishing and the possibilities of the book.

On Saturday, June 11th, the fourth Conceptual Poetics Day will explore the imaginary border between visual art and literature. It will feature readings, talks, performances and books by Eugen Gomringer, James Sherry, Matvei Yankelevich, Cordula Daus, Paul Soulellis, Franz Thalmair, Lois Bartel, Stefan Riebel, Ignacio Uriarte , Hank Schmidt in der Beek , Annette Gilbert, Thomas Thiel, Arno Auer, Cia Rinne, and many more.

On Sunday, June 12th, MISS READ STAGE will present lectures, booklaunches and a symposion on How to Collect Artists Books, organised in collaboration with Zentrum für Künstlerpublikationen Weserburg and featuring presentations by Anne Thurmann-Jajes,Tony White, Eva Linhart and Beatrice Hernad, among others.
