Lodret Vandret is one of the three publishing houses, along with Mondo Books and Heavy Books, invited to take part in Coast Contemporary’s second edition to present their catalogue and activities in the Hurtigruten’s library as part of the pop-up Bergen Art Book Fair.
Lodret Vandret is an independent imprint based between Copenhagen and Berlin, interested in combining different sensibilities and collaboration, both when working with individual artists and on group projects. Lodret Vandret regularly exhibits at the largest art book fairs to actively be a part of the ever growing international art publishing community. An offspring of Lodret Vandret is One Thousand Books, a project that tries to challenge traditional ways of exploring the artists’ book through book fairs in supermarkets, exhibitions in public art spaces, or workshops and seminars. Lodret Vandret was founded in 2010 by artists Flemming Ove Bech (b. 1982) and Johan Rosenmunthe (b. 1982) and operates as a not-for-profit organisation.
