Since the launch in 2015, the Cologne Art Book Fair (TCABF) has developed into an international platform for artist books, zines, artist magazines and magazines unique in NRW. We thank all exhibitors of the last years and all participants who make 2019 our small anniversary possible:
On the 6th and 7th of July the 5th edition of TCABF will take place in the center of Cologne at the Kölnischer Kunstverein. In the anniversary year, the sales exhibition in the exhibition hall of the Kunstverein will be accompanied by a varied supporting program with book presentations, lectures and discussions.
As in previous years, TCABF 2019 brings together artist bookmakers, self-publishing artists, authors, publishers, art magazines, and initiatives that shape the artist book scene, even outside major international fairs. In addition to representatives from North Rhine-Westphalia and the whole of Germany as well as international guests, TCABF, in cooperation with the Kölnischer Kunstverein, is also seeking a link with the local artist scene. The broad spectrum of actors and formats shows how constantly current and multidimensional the medium is as an alternative space for new concepts.
