MONO.PUNKT #37: INDEX 2017 MEXICO

We imagine dust settling in the sun beams creeping through wooden Venetian blinds and over hundreds of fine books with illustrious drawings and laborious design, slightly smudged by print-stained fingers sore from browsing. Of course, the reality will look nothing like it but be just as beautiful. Ladies and gents, Index Art Book Fair at [...]

MONO.PUNKT #35: INDEX MEXICO 2016

Somewhere on the other side of this planet – well, Mexico City, to be precise – tomorrow evening the doors to Index Art Book Fair at Museo Jumex will open. Hundreds of our Latin American friends will pour into the space and devour the hundreds of fine publications on offer, produced with love and care. [...]

MONO.PUNKT #32: FOOKBAIR FRANKFURT 2015

Autumn rains are here, and so is the annual season of art book fairs. With the mother of all art book fairs leading the way a few weeks ago, publishing execs worldwide will move their smartphones to Frankfurt this week for the largest regular book gathering in the world, accompanied this Saturday by its little [...]

MONO.PUNKT #31: LOS ANGELES BOOK FAIR

We keep hearing only good things about Printed Matter’s East Coast version of the renowned mother of all book fairs, and given the grim weather outside our windows, we certainly wish we were there right now. But at least our fine adventure in print will be, courtesy of our friends at Georgiev Trinder Curatorial, who [...]

MONO.PUNKT #29: THREE LETTER WORDS

Did we mention that art book fairs are all over the place these days? But this weekend is special, because this weekend we will see the revival of one of our favourite fairs ever, London’s legendary and long gone AWOL Publish and Be Damned.
Undergoing a revamp and reappearing under a new name – Three Letter [...]

MONO.PUNKT #27: DUBLIN ART BOOK FAIR

Autumn is art book fair season, and hardly a weekend passes where publishers and magazine makers do not convene at some location in the world to present their efforts. This weekend is the turn of the cherished town of Dublin for the fourth installment of the Dublin Art Book Fair, where Temple Bar Gallery invited [...]

MONO.PUNKT #24: SALON LIGHT / PARIS

La littérature and les beaux arts are part of French culture as much as, say, a glass of red wine and a fat chunk of camembert, so it’s no surprise that Salon Light, the annual art book fair organised by CNEAI, should already invite to its 10th anniversary, celebrated in style with a pompous nuit [...]

MONO.PUNKT #21 & #22: BERLIN VS NEW YORK

Berlin is the new New York, it is often being said, but what’s for sure is that the New York Art Book Fair is the mother of all art book fairs, including the little Berlin offspring Miss Read. As it happens, the dates for both coincide this year, with both opening today through Sunday. Miss [...]

MONO.PUNKT #21: ART KREUZBERG

Kreuzberg has been our home since the very early days of mono.kultur, so of course we won’t say no to an invitation to participate at the annual Art Kreuzberg where the closed doors of artists studios and other cultural spaces miraculously open. Come and visit us at our friends’ space Erd im Feuer, a former [...]
