In 2018 the Antwerp Academy Art Book Fair celebrates its fifth anniversary! This art book fair has become the largest of its kind in the Benelux. More than 120 exhibitors from home and abroad present the best in the field of art books and artists’ publications from the 20th and 21st century. They do this in the atmospheric galleries and corridors of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. For this fifth edition, the sections PAST (with modern antiquarian material) and PRESENT (with contemporary publishers) will be supplemented with a third: FUTURE. This section provides a platform for the printed output of Belgian higher art education, with a focus on research publications. Together, the three sections offer a unique insight into the rich tradition and bright future of avant-garde and artistic print. In short, there will be more than enough to experience and explore to spend a day at this unique art book fair. With the support of Antwerpen Boekenstad.
