Vleeshal at WIELS Art Book Fair 2023
Book fair, Book launch, Talk
18 – 19 March 2023
On the weekend of 18 and 19 March, Vleeshal will be present at WIELS Art Book Fair. At this art book fair, independent publishers will present their work. This annual event is free to enter and allows book lovers, collectors, artists and art professionals to discover a wide range of printed matter; from zines and artists' books to art catalogs and artists' editions.
On Saturday 18 March at 11:30 am, we will celebrate the release of Kaspar Müller's book, the latest book published by Vleeshal and BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE. The WIELS auditorium will host the book launch with a screening of Halleluja (2017), a video work by Kaspar Müller, and Q&A between the artist and Roos Gortzak, director of Vleeshal. Afterwards, there will be a signing session.
For decades Vleeshal is invested in the development of publications. Books published by Vleeshal are internationally appreciated for their experimental content and form. At Vleeshal, a publication is never 'merely' about documentation of a past exhibition, but rather about creating an 'extension' of an artistic project, generating meaning in the present, and thus allowing the project to live on after the exhibition.
Vleeshal publishes monographs, critical analyses, catalogues and books on artists who have exhibited at the Vleeshal. It works with international publishers and distributors, including Hatje Cantz, Walther König and Sternberg Press, to expand the reach of its independent and small-scale publications.
