For the fourth time the Independent Publishers and Zine Fair Vienna will be hosted by Kunsthalle Wien. The successes of the previous fairs have resulted in this year’s event expanding to three days, and will again see more than sixty local and international exhibitors and artists exhibiting, selling, and exchanging their works. Zines, posters, t-shirts, prints, magazines, printed ephemera, art books and art magazines will be displayed and sold.
Alongside the exhibitors, ten artists (including Ballabella Papers, Matthew Brannon, AA Bronson, Clit Clique, Kerstin Cmelka, Sture Johannesson David Jourdan, Cameron Rowland, Stefanie Sargnagel, and Martin Vesely) will punctuate the fair with editions and interventions—some in the form of performances, some as prints, others as t-shirts. As a special exhibition, Hubert Winter, the Viennese gallerist, will curate a selection of art books and ephemera from his vast collection of works from some of the best-known ’60s and ’70s conceptualists. Parallel to the fair, a series of talks and discussions by a selection of expert speakers (a.o. with Post Brothers, Michalis Pichler and Hubert Winter) will touch on emerging practices and debates within zine culture, and will illuminate issues relating to independent publishing today.
Following the opening of the fair on Friday, the scene will shift to Kunsthalle Wien at Karlsplatz, where the spirit of the fair will continue well into the night with a party for the exhibitors and fair-goers, with music by Norbert & his last unicorn. Zines, artists, publishers, drinks, and dancing!
With countless book and zine fairs around the world, the Kunsthalle Wien’s Independent Publishers and Zine Fair Vienna is a unique international event that aims to set itself apart with a particular dedication to a thriving local publishing scene in Vienna, pairing it with like-minded international makers for a series of productive exchanges and engagements.
