BOX #5: Artist Books

07/28/19 to 09/15/19

In recent years, the segment of thematic and exhibition-independent art and artist books has developed strongly. Numerous smaller labels, publishers, shops and trade fairs initiated by artists and art historians have emerged. From 28 July to 15 September, the Kunsthalle Mannheim will be presenting selected art publications in an exhibition in the BOX documenting this development and creating new references to the content of the Mannheim Kunsthalle.

On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition, there will also be an Artist Books Fair on July 27 from 11 am to 5 pm: a "market day" with stalls, lectures and actions in the atrium of the Kunsthalle Mannheim.

Open Call: In addition to the exhibition, the Kunsthalle Mannheim invites emerging and established artists as well as actors in the field of artistic self-publications to submit their works, self-published editions and booklets to the Kunsthalle Mannheim.

Program curator: Dörte Ilsabe Dennemann

Open call: Would you like to talk about your works on July 27, 2019 and sell them at a stand in the Kunsthalle Mannheim?

With a jury of internal and external professionals and enthusiasts for Artist Books we make a selection and invite you to the Artist Books Fair on July 27, 2019 in the Kunsthalle Mannheim.

Works that relate to the Kunsthalle Mannheim collection are especially welcomed.

The Kunsthalle will provide you with a stand and catering.
