Vienna Art Book Fair
October 4–6, 2019

Publishing Manifestos Edited by Michalis Pichler

Over the course of three days the biennial Vienna Art Book Fair #1 provides a platform for artists, collectives, self-publishers, small publishing houses, antiquarian booksellers, art libraries, institutions, printers, collectors and for all those who are dedicated to the medium of the book.

The Expositur Vordere Zollamtsstraße 7 will be turned into a book lovers’ adventure park. The artists’ book as a democratic work of art will be the focus of the VABF. Hence, it is of great importance for us to keep the event free and open to the public.

How to Indie Magazine

The Vienna Art Book Fair is pleased to host several exhibitions at this year’s event. Marlene Obermayer invited professionals in the field of art and culture to curate exhibitions on artists’ books, “publishing as artistic practice” and publications that utilized special distribution mechanisms.
