This year the Athens Conservatory is hosting the second Art Book Fair festival which aims to highlight the diversity of contemporary artistic publications and many other independent creations related to print as a creative medium, but also to connect established publishing houses, experimental and DIY publications.

A total of eighty exhibitors from Greece and abroad and sixty participations in the Collective Table make up one of the largest book events held in Athens. Art Book Fair is an independent artist-run venture, a meeting ground of contemporary visual arts, photography, poetry, typography and design that gives visitors the opportunity to discover artists from around the world and engage with independent publishing practices.

The Art Book Fair is an independent artist-run venture, a meeting ground of contemporary visual arts, photography, poetry, typography and design, giving visitors the opportunity to discover artists from all over the world and get in touch with independent publishing practices.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is the Public Talks Program which will focus on highlighting projects that respond to current socio-political and artistic issues.

Also included will be talks exploring the concept of decentralization in contemporary independent publishing, such as Olson Lamaj’s on zine creation and contemporary Albanian artists, but also the contribution of book artists to the creation of emerging cultural and cross-border networks of support and promotion of the medium .

Also, this year’s Art Book Fair is launching its collaboration with Fade Radio, which will function as a platform for relaying parallel actions of the public program during the three days of the festival. There will be a series of recordings entitled “Broadcasting Pages: Tales from the Local Scene”, which is exclusively dedicated to the domestic independent publishing scene, while the audience will have access to speeches and additional presentations and musical selections from this year’s exhibitors , which have a hybrid practical interaction with media such as sound and performance. The lecture program will also be accessible online.
