Unseen 2015: Celebrating Books at the Unseen Book Market

by Unseen August 06 2015

This year the Unseen Book Market will be back with over 60 participants, ready to share the latest and greatest in the photobook industry. Be sure to browse the stands, located on-site at the Westergasfabriek this September.

With a rich programme of impromptu book launches and signings, be the first to discover new publications and meet the people making them. Drawing in an international crowd, visitors can rub shoulders with photographers, graphic designers and curators that appreciate striking imagery and extraordinary storytelling; the book market channels the diverse practices that come together in photobook publishing.

In addition to the announcement of the Dummy Award winner, book signings and talks, a highlight of this year’s Unseen Book Market will be the celebration of Self Publish, Be Happy’s fifth birthday. To coincide with the release of its Manifesto/Manual co-published with Aperture, it embarks with its most ambitious printing performance: 10 artists, 24 hours, 3 continents. Starting at the Tokyo Art Book Fair, continuing at Unseen in Amsterdam and finishing at the New York Art Book Fair, artists will respond to each other’s work across continents and time with the goal of producing one collective publication.
