One Thousand Books 2016

April 21 – 24 and through May 15

Master Art Direction have been invited to participate in this years One Thousand Books in Copenhagen with a special workshop held the week before with Designbolaget.

We are looking forward to welcome you to a 4-day festival and 3-week exhibition of/about artists’ books. The festival is April 21-24 with the exhibition running in the three following weeks. The main venue this year is Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

One Thousand Books 2016 features a free and open to the public one-day seminar, a group exhibition curated by 13 participating publishers, a book fair on the opening weekend and networking events.

The theme of the festival this year is ‘art(ists’) books and exhibition making’. The relationship between books and exhibitions is often either that of the catalogue or books statically displayed out of reach and behind glass. However, there must be a more engaging, democratic and ultimately more deserving manner to exhibit a book work. What if we get rid of the glass vitrines and expand the book as an installation in an art space setting? This is the question around which One Thousand Books 2016 revolves.
