Art Publishing Today talk by Yannick Bouillis
We are delighted to welcome Yannick Bouillis to Berlin for a talk on the topic of Art Publishing Today!
Yannick Bouillis is best known as being the founding director of the Offprint art publishing fair. In itself, we can easily say that he is one of our leading experts on independent art publishing today, its pull, its role and the vast array of visions this complex field holds from one independent publisher to another. That aside, in 2016 he also self published an artist book on Derrida, taking as a starting point the only text in which the philosopher directly addresses the role of the photographic image at large. This text, originally an interview with the philosopher, is reproduced in its entirety in this generously illustrated book, the illustrations are exclusively of found media portraits of the philosopher. Yannick will be signing his book this evening.
Yannick Bouillis will give us a taste of his experience as fair director and artist book publisher. Join us for the Q&A !
Offprint, now in its 9th year, is an annual international art book fair held in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and at Tate Modern, London. Offprint invites independent art publishers from all over the world to present their publications to the public and exists as a platform of exchange with talks relating to independent art publishing.
Created in 2010, Offprint is LUMA Foundation’s platform supporting socially engaged editors experimenting new formats and contents. All year-round, Offprint gathers and presents a group of publishers and lesser-known publications, circulating mostly outside the traditional commercial networks: publishers stricto sensu, as well as art schools, magazines, self-published books, artists collectives, research reviews, zines… Each year, Offprint organizes a series of events to support publishers: two fairs (Offprint Paris and Offprint London), several traveling libraries (Milan, Amsterdam), a permanent library at the Parc des Ateliers, in Arles, and curated bookshops for private and public institutions. Supporting artists and the production of ground-breaking cultural projects, LUMA Arles is pleased to produce Offprint. LUMA Arles and Offprint both aim at supporting independent publishing and all fields of contemporary creation.
