The sixth edition of VOLUMES – Art Publishing Days – will take place on Friday, 29th, Saturday, 30th of November and Sunday, 1st of December 2019. We are happy to be back at Kunsthalle Zürich, in the historical building of Löwenbräu Kunst.
VOLUMES 2019 will present a fine selection of local and international artists and art books, zines and magazines. This hybrid event will also feature a range of exhibitions, performances, talks, readings, workshops as well as a symposium. VOLUMES is the only fair and festival for independent art publishing in Zürich. On the two floors of the Kunsthalle Zürich, the visitors will be able to browse through publishers' stands, visit the exhibition floor and dive deeper into various artistic practices, take part in free workshops, as well as attend a programme of talks and performances. For the first time, the fair will also take place in the room of Luma Westbau on the third floor of Löwenbräu Kunst, just opposite (of) the Kunsthalle (room) (where the program was already happening last year).
We are happy to present a special focus with the symposium „ Publishing and archival strategies in artistic practices (The example of Peter Trachsel archive)“, which will take place in the Luma Westbau room on Saturday afternoon.
As every year, the "International Open Call" exhibition, for which zinesters and artists from all around the world donate one publication, will present a snapshot of the current international DIY publishing scene.
VOLUMES would like to thank all the supporters and funders, Kunsthalle Zürich and Luma Westbau for hosting us, ZhdK, eglibau and Freitag for the technical support.
