One Thousand Books

OTB2016

OTB2016

One Thousand Books 2016 features a free and open to the public one-day seminar, a group exhibition curated by 13 participating publishers, a bookfair on the opening weekend and networking events.

Theme

The theme of the festival this year is ‘art(ists’) books and exhibition making’. The relationship between books and exhibitions is often either that of the catalogue or books statically displayed out of reach and behind glass. However, there must be a more engaging, democratic and ultimately more deserving manner to exhibit a book work. What if we get rid of the glass vitrines and expand the book as an installation in an art space setting? This is the question around which One Thousand Books 2016 revolves.
