Fair — WildBookMarket 2012

You are invited to the Wild­Book­Mar­ket 2012 open­ing tonight, Feb­ru­ary 10th 2012, at Het Wilde Weten in Rot­ter­dam…

Artist run space Het Wilde Weten invited artists, and small, inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ers, to present their pub­lic­a­tions at the 3rth edi­tion of the Wild­Book­Mar­ket (WBM).

At the WBM artists, inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ers, an artacademy, and graph­ic design studio’s will present their most recent, spe­cial, excit­ing and unique art books and zines. WBM is the ideal oppor­tun­ity to explore, buy or swap art(ists) books.

WBM 2012 includes nearly 20 exhib­it­ors and 150 indi­vidu­al entries. The entries come from many coun­tries in Europe, and from the USA. Most pub­lic­a­tions were released in 2011, but some are pub­lished this year!
All par­ti­cipants are united in the WBM­cata­logue.”

On Sat­urday Feb­ru­ary 11th at 5pm Heiðar Kári Ran­nversson will give a present­a­tion in the chapel, the guest-stu­dio: ILLIT­ER­ATE BOOK­WORM – Read­ing Artists Books as/​in The­ory and Prac­tice

Artists books have an ambig­ous status as objects of art: Books to be looked at – art to be read. The present­a­tion will ques­tion how artists books – as idea or concept, as medi­um or form, as strategy or prac­tice – func­tion as or in art prac­tice. In oth­er words: What can one ‘read’ from artists books in terms of research in the arts?”
