Maximum capacity 15 participants
Within the Photobook Market of Art Photo Bcn there are many, many books. New and classics, many that you will know and others that you won’t, some that you understand and others that you don’t quite… In this activity, Mateo Pérez, curator and photographer, shows us a wide selection of publications and self-publishing that he has been collecting over the years. the years. Publications made in a thousand different ways, digital printing, risography, offset; stapled, sewn or folded, fold-out; expensive and cheap finishes… and many of them can be found in the Photobook Market.
The purpose of this activity is to make visible the infinity of technical and narrative resources that we have at our fingertips when making a publication. And how to make them useful when it comes to promoting the message we want to convey. We will display the entire collection of publications on a table and we will go on a crazy tour gutting all the publications.
