Fair — Sunday Book Fair

Art insti­tu­tions and small pub­lish­ing houses in the Neth­er­lands offer a wide vari­ety of pub­lic­a­tions that focus on con­tem­por­ary art and art the­ory. Often with a par­tic­u­lar emphas­is in sub­ject mat­ter, these pub­lish­ers con­trib­ute in a sig­ni­fic­ant and mean­ing­ful way to the inter­na­tion­al dis­course of con­tem­por­ary art. With the Sunday Book Fair – organ­ized for the first time at the museum – the Stedelijk aims to be a plat­form for the present­a­tion of recently pub­lished artists books, read­ers, cata­logues, encyclopedia’s, etc. invit­ing pub­lish­ing houses of a mod­est scale to pitch their new books in the Aud­it­or­i­um of the Stedelijk, fol­lowed by a book fair in the museum café.
