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.
