Miss Read: The Berlin Art Book Fair brings together a wide selection of the most interesting artists/authors, artist periodicals and art publishers and is accompanied by a series of lectures, discussions, book launches and workshops exploring the boundaries of contemporary publishing and the possibilities of the book.
In conjunction, the annual Conceptual Poetics Day explores the imaginary border between visual art and literature.
Founded in 2009, MISS READ is Europe’s Art Book Festival, dedicated to community-building and creating a public meeting place for discourse around artists’ books, conceptual publications and publishing as practice. In 2017 MISS READ gathered 240 exhibitors.
Since 2017, Miss Read: The Berlin Art Book Fair takes place at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin.
