Call for submissions: International Open Call & Zürich Archive

This year VOLUMES 2016, the independent publishing fair takes place on the 25th and 26th of November at Gessnerallee Zürich. Would you fancy taking part in one of the two exhibitions showcased this year at the fair?

Here is what you can choose from:
- International Open Call
This Exhibition acts as a snapshot of the current international production. It is especially designed for all the publishers who cannot come to VOLUMES 2016 in Zürich but still want to showcase their production to the very keen audience we have here.
- Zürich Archive
A collection of zines and artist books connected to Zürich! The publications can be directly or indirectly related to the city. We want to showcase different layers of experiences that share this same location. We are interested in documentary depictions of the place and snapshots of experiences with the city as a background. It can be photography, short stories, illustrations, collages…

If you are interested in contributing to the International Open Call or/and the Zürich Archive, send one copy of an original independent publication to: VOLUMES c/o Franchette & Veser, Gessnerallee Zürich, Gessnerallee 8, Ch-8001 Zürich, Switzerland before the 1st of November 2016. Important: state your name, the title, the year of completion, the printing technique and “Open Call” or “Zürich Archive” at the back of the envelope (all in capital letters please). ALL publications sent to us will be exhibited at the fair. They will then join our archive, which will be showcased in a Zürich art space as well as being available online.
