Event — Libros Mutantes 2013


From April 23th to 28th, 2013 Lib­ros Mutantes will hold its fourth edi­tion as the most rel­ev­ante self-pub­lish­ing event of the Spain art scene at La Casa Encendida in Mad­rid…

The main ven­ue for this art book fair will be La Casa Encendida (Mad­rid), where a wide range of activ­it­ies, work­shops, lec­tures, con­certs and going-ons will take place to cel­eb­rate the rise of inde­pend­ent and exper­i­ment­al pub­lish­ing. From Fri­day 26th to Sunday 28th the cent­ral court­yard of La Casa Encendida will host the main event of our pro­ject: the Art Book Fair with more than 40 inter­na­tion­al pub­lish­ing pro­jects.

The Art Book Fair will exhib­it a wide range of exper­i­ment­al pub­lic­a­tions, art and design books, magazines and zines from dif­fer­ent coun­tries. The final selec­tion is the res­ult of an Open Call at lib​rosmutantes​.com. These pro­jects chal­lenge the gen­er­al assump­tions about pub­lish­ing through an exper­i­ment­al approach to prin­ted paper. Des­pite their visu­al appeal, most of these pub­lic­a­tions have lim­ited print runs and dis­tri­bu­tion, so Lib­ros Mutantes will offer a unique oppor­tun­ity to flick through them and meet their cre­at­ors in per­son.

The cur­at­ori­al team has also selec­ted a group of inter­na­tion­al guests who have a spe­cial pres­ence at Lib­ros Mutantes: Max Schu­mann from Prin­ted Mat­ter Inc. (New York), Études Books (France), Junk Jet (Ger­many), Erik van der Wejde (Neth­er­lands), Rollo Press (Switzer­land) or The Rod­ina (Czech Repub­lic). All of them will show their pub­lic­a­tions at the Book Fair, and they will share their exper­i­ences at Per­spectivas Mutantes, a series of lec­tures on inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ing that will take place dur­ing the week­end, and which will include a spe­cial lec­ture by the design­er Albert Fol­ch.”
