MAY 2019

Following the successful editions of the GHENT ART BOOK FAIR from 2015 until 2018 at 019’s docks of Ghent, the fair’s edition 2019 moves to a new location. Art collective 019 and APE-art&books ( former RIOT) are proud to present the 5th edition of the GHENT ART BOOK FAIR on the 11th and 12th of May at (and in collaboration with) Kunsthal Gent.

Showcasing contemporary art books by more than 60 (inter)national independent publishers, GABF 19 brings a new extensive program besides book launches and signings. An interesting side program will include international publishers’ and designers’ lectures, artists’ performances, workshops and exhibitions. All presented in the brand new Kunsthal Gent located in the city center of Ghent.

During the same weekend, at the same location* there's also Zine Happening V by Les VoiZines taking place.

*The two festivals collaborate, and share the space, but are still separate in their programming and tables (a symbiotic relationship, just as nature likes it).
