Friends with Books: Art Book Fair Berlin

The Friends With Books Fair is a weekend festival celebrating periodicals by artists, books edited by artists and contemporary artist’s books. It was founded in 2014 to promote art publications and to engage a new audience for the genre. Held in Berlin in late September, it has quickly become a popular show attracting more than 200 participants. The event organises readings, performances, discussions and lectures inviting the public to explore contemporary artistic publication. Limited edition book signings have also featured at the show.
