ABOUT - Independent Publishing Fair
»We are ABOUT to make history« is the motto of the first ABOUT Independent Publishing Fair in Mainz. This fair for small publishing houses and self-publishers that work within the fields of art and design is taking place from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th of May 2012. It complements »Schrift/Macht/Welten.«, a notable symposium that will address to the relationship of typography and power, and is organized by the German Society for Design History in Mainz.
Located on the spacious premises of FH Mainz – University of Applied Sciences, ABOUT offers more than 200 square meters for the presentation and sale of a great variety of publications. With more than 25 participants from all across the country and a focus on the presentation of student's publications from various art academies, it facilitates exchange and dialogue with like-minded people as well as the general public.
Along with the fair, we have organized the exhibition »FLAGS« which will showcase 16 flag designs by international designers. Also on Saturday evening, there will be a Pecha Kucha Night. During this event every speaker will present a chosen topic (anything that comes to mind) on 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds.
Entrance is free of charge.
