Open Call: Super BOOKS 2020 

With Super BOOKS autonomous artist publications will be presented on a larger scale this year for the second time in Munich. For two days, on 29. and 30. May, artists, designers and independent publishers will show their productions in Haus der Kunst’s Terrace Hall. 

With Super BOOKS Haus der Kunst follows the tradition of independent, individual places that have been formed since the 1960s in the environment of the international, post avant-garde art scene for artists’ publications and their reception. It is no coincidence that artists’ publications are also an expression of the emancipatory intention of democratizing art and its market and building new communication and distribution networks. 

Super BOOKS was organized for the first time in 2019 at Haus der Kunst as part of the exhibition "Archives in Residence: AAP Archiv Künstlerpublikationen" curated by Sabine Brantl and is a collaborative project between Haus der Kunst, AAP Archiv Künstlerpublikationen, Akademie der Bildenden Künste Munich and fructa space, Munich. 

Admission is free.
