Artist Book Workshop 艺术家丛书工作坊

with Sonja Zagermann

Date: Sep 24 - Sep 27, 2015
Location: I: project space

Artist books are a very important medium for upcoming artists to promote and document their art independently and share it easily.
On the other side artist-books are a great and challenging medium for designer to create and to work with – with the strength of the design discipline they are able to transform the work of the artists into book form.
During a 4-days workshop each designer will work in close collaboration with one artist or with one group of artists. After an introduction into methods of artistic editorial design, the designer will analyze the works and the working method of the artist, to develop an individual book, which will correspond to the artwork in order to support and present it in the best way.
Throughout the whole workshop the participants will be supported and guided by editorial designer Sonja Zagermann.
A few days after the actual workshop the resulting books will be printed and presented to the public in an exhibition as part of BJDW.

A jury will choose artists due to their motivation letter and CV. All artists will coincide with the concept of I: project space.
