HOW(EVER) – Portikus Art Book Festival

Event20 – 23 October 2022Portikus, Alte Brücke 2 / Maininsel, 60594 Frankfurt am Main

HOW(EVER) – Portikus Art Book Festival

HOW(EVER) is an event dedicated to contemporary forms of art publishing. Taking place in conjunction with the Frankfurt Book Fair, HOW(EVER) offers a glimpse into the vibrant practices of over 200 publishing communities and showcases diverse approaches to book-making. The title of this inaugural program is inspired by the eponymous journal founded by US-American poet Kathleen Fraser (1935–2019), a radical platform that championed the work of women writers.

Rethinking ways of engaging with artist publications, the Barcelona-based architecture studio MAIO has been commissioned to create an installation in-situ, which displays a curated selection of art books and zines from all continents that are available for purchase. HOW(EVER) examines the poetic and political power of publishing—its ongoing exploration of alternative methods of cultural production and its possibilities as a form of resistance. Over the course of four days, Portikus turns into a site that highlights new editorial discourses and fosters the circulation of art books.

The Portikus Art Book Festival is accompanied by a series of conversations titled HOW(EVER) RADICAL OBJECTS curated in collaboration with Eina Idea (Barcelona).
