VOLUMES is a non-profit organisation and collective which was created in Zürich in 2013 to support the local and international DIY-facet of art publishing and introduce it to a larger audience in Switzerland. The fair will present a fine selection of local and international artists and art books, zines and magazines. This hybrid event also features a range of performances, readings, presentations, exhibitions, and workshops. VOLUMES is the only fair for independent art publishing in Zürich.
The edition 2018 takes place at Kunsthalle Zürich as is part of Kunst: Szene Zürich 2018.
On the two floors of Kunsthalle Zürich, the visitors will be able to browse through the publishers' stands, take part in a series of free workshops, attend a programme of performances, talks and exhibitions.
This year's special focus is titled "SIN NINGUNA VERGÜENZA" and will give an understanding of independent publishing in Chile. VOLUMES' classic "International Open Call" exhibition, for which zinesters and artists from all around the world donate one publication, presented a snapshot of the current international DIY publishing scene.
