Bergen Art Book Fair at Bergen Kunsthall 2017


Bergen Art Book Fair

Coast Contemporary has, in collaboration with Bergen Art Book Fair, invited three Nordic publishers to host a small book fair in Hurtigruten’s own library space. The invited publishers are Mondo Books, Lodret Vandret, and Heavy Books. In addition, a selection of Norwegian artist’s books relevant to this year’s Bergen Art Book Fair is presented in anticipation of its upcoming edition on land at Bergen Kunsthall on November 1-4, 2018. During the cruise, artist Christian Tunge of Heavy Books works on an artist’s publication, which will in part be printed on board.

Bergen Art Book Fair (BABF) is a yearly event that includes over 50 independent publishers from Norway and abroad, and within the fair format represents a wide scope of artist’s books and fanzines. BABF returns to Bergen Kunsthall for its sixth instalment in 2018. The fair includes a one-day seminar, a one-night programme of presentations, performance and music, and continues over a weekend across Bergen Kunsthall’s galleries, highlighting some of the most interesting local, national, and international publications and print works. Bergen Art Book Fair is organised by Pamflett, a self-publishing workshop and exhibition space for artist’s publications and fanzines in Bergen.
