Festival The Other Book is a unique celebration of the art book in all its facets.
It is the first biennial event in The Hague (NL) that combines an art book fair with exhibitions, workshops, talks, presentations, demonstrations, films, and performances at various locations. Each edition focuses on a different kind of ‘other book’. The first edition of The Other Book (29 November 2019 – 1 December 2019) is devoted to the Riso revolution: art books produced with Risograph and Mimeograph stencil duplicators.
Over the course of three days, The Other Book provides a platform for artists, publishers, print rooms, collectives, art libraries, collectors and book enthusiasts. By partnering with local artists and initiatives, and providing a stage for both local and (inter)national artists, The Other Book serves as a place of exchange. The extensive program explores artistic practices, conceptual publications and the seemingly endless possibilities of the art book.
