Arts Libris & Gutter Fest 2014

Hello again! This month, and the next one, we are on fairs! The first one is Arts Libris, is a Artist book fair in Barcelona, organized by Raíña Lupa and Arts Santa Mònica.

(copy from the web): Arts Libris will take place from the 23rd until the 27th of April in the Arts Santa Mònica Centre. As in previous editions, the opening will coincide with Sant Jordi: the Catalan national holiday that celebrates literature, books as art pieces, experimental graphic design and special editions. In relation to Michel Butor’s quote: “In the future, the few books in which we will be interested, will be the ones considered artworks”, Arts Libris is working for this future to be full of fascinating, pleasant and stimulating editions and books.

On 9 and 10 of May, we have the D.I.Y. supreme fair on Hangar: Gutter Fest. We went there the last year and was really good! Music, comics, photozines and lots of screenprints. Like in Arts Libris (and as usual on all the fairs we are going), we are going to have music from Orgonomy Records, specially the last cd Blue Birds Dominion.

And, don't forget to follow the Zines of the Zone tour! Last photographs we saw, from Budapest, we saw Internet romance and Altres tafaners! Good to see the stuff published travelling around Europe!

Pilgrimage by Ekaterina Solovieva

A month ago, we published Pilgrimage (ПАЛОМНИКИ), a limited edition photozine in black and white about, yeah..., a pilgrimage. The report and the tracking of all the journeys were made, with a lot of patience, by Ekaterina Solovieva.

Ekaterina Solovieva is from Moscow (Москва́), and after graduating as a journalist at the University of Moscow, he moved to Hamburg, were she stills working with its greatest passion: photography.

You can find ПАЛОМНИКИ at Fatbottombooks, and soon in other bookstores. We are also going to have it at Arts Libris Zine & Artbook fair in Barcelona (if this is the case, mail us so we can keep it for you!). For future information, stay in touch at our twitter and facebook accounts!

Capitalismo Barbarie and other fanzines at the Fatbottom bookstore in Barcelona

The exhibition has been possible thanks to the work of the Photobookshow and the TIP (Tokyo Institute of Photography), the Photobookshow is a Brighton-based arts organisation, set up in 2011 by William Sadowski and Kevin Beck to raise the profile of artist-led photobooks.

The Photobookshow aims to hold several exhibitions a year, alongside talks and workshops. The Tokyo exhibition comes after a recent exhibition in Malmö, at the Vasli Sousa (first weeks of February) and paves the way for the next great exhibition G Photobook show in Brighton (England) from the 6 to the 15 of June at the One Eyed Jacks Gallery.

Zines of the Zone: Barcelona

The CFD hall

Ana Zaragoza García photobook "La famille poirot 1", we love it!

Yep, so Tuesday we made a short visit to the Zines of the zone event in CFD (Creació de Fotografía Documental) in Barcelona, organized with the Photobook Club Barcelona. We couldn't stay in the they did, but we take a look at the collection and we can guarantee that it's a valuable treasure.

We had the chance to have a look at the Booklet version of "Stories" named "Afterword".

I hope the next city on the tour: Vevey, Switzerland (you can see the full list here), can enjoy our photozines and collage zines, because we left a good pile.

New zines! February 2014

Oh! We have new stuff! Some of them were already on the website, but now you can buy them here. The first one was "No saquen las flores" from Pere Saguer and you can have a preview here. The second photozine is our first publication from Irene Serrano, a young photographer from Barcelona and addicted to party.

2pm 6am by Irene Serrano Robredo

The zine has to be seen as a full summer carefree day. And with the nice sunny weather. But we are not very fans of sunny weather, truly.

Glorious Youth!

People, afterparty on Barcelona subway.

Tenderete 7: photos

So, two long weeks after Tenderete 7, and here we go again: Thanks to all we meet there! Specially to Maria Lorente and his "Técnicas contra la desaparición".

This was our desk. Big and comfortable.

Here one of our neighbours: Bill Noir (Mékanik Copulaire) and his fantastic collage stuff.

And on the other side, Pau Valls and Arròs Negre fanzine.

We can't forget the fantastic music and radio programs during the festival.

We couldn't leave València without eating some bravas near the Central Market
