Paris Ass Book Fair is an international fair that brings together publishers of artist’s books and fanzines, booksellers, and artists who approach print as a medium in its own right. Their publications take on a wide range of formats: fanzines, books, clothes, multiples, comics and literature. What they share is a desire to explore taboos, sex and gender – and all of their representations and troubles – as playful, poetic and political subjects.
The Paris Ass Book Fair is a meeting place for artists, publishers, booksellers and amateurs that looks to stimulate exchange and creativity in a spirit of openness, inventiveness and mutual respect.
In a global context where reactionary forces are on the rise, threatening our rights and our freedoms, Paris Ass Book Fair seeks to contribute to the expression and the circulation of forms, images, speech and writing which promote the value of difference and respect for the other.
60 publishers, booksellers and artists from around the world.
It features an ongoing cultural programme of talks and events.
