PrintRoom joined the NY Art Book Fair organised by Printed Matter and hosted by MoMA Ps1, from September 11 – 18 2016. It  featured 370 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions, and independent publishers from 28 countries—and was attended by more than 35,000 people.
Our Post Internet service was there to run an internal mail system among publishers. We attended the weekend long series of events, talks, lectures and met up with publishing friends. We looked carefully at the presented books and made a selection for PrintRoom.


François Girard-Meunier  / supersupersupersuper

supersupersupersuper is a label, a distributor, a showcaser, a selector, an enabler… or briefly a tool for (their member’s own) public visibility, present sporadically at public events such as book fairs. François Girard-Meunier, associate at supersupersupersuper, will offer an insight on the permeability of professional and amateur practices within book publishing and its resulting economic implications with its participation at the NYABF in mind. No ISBN (yet) but still a business.
Zoe Beloff
A World Redrawn is an exploration by the artist Zoe Beloff of Sergei Eisenstein and Bertolt Brecht’s experiences in Hollywood in the 1930s and ‘40s, what their time in Hollywood meant to them then and what it might mean to us now. Beloff focuses on two unrealized films written during this time: “Glass House” by Eisenstein and “A Model Family” by Brecht.

The book reproduces many important and little-known documents from the period, including a large selection of previously unpublished drawings by Eisenstein discovered by Beloff in the Russian State Archive of Literature and Art in Moscow and facsimile reproductions of the writings of Eisenstein and Brecht as they contemplate the politics and culture of Hollywood.

Freek Lomme
A performative book launch, a loungy reading on tactility in the framework of the book ’Can you feel it? – Effectuating tactility and print in the contemporary’, by Freek Lomme, curator/editor of the project as well as poet and founding director of the Eindhoven (NL) gallery and publisher Onomatopee. Presenting artists in the practice of making and thinkers in the development of thought here and now, the project connects to tactile characteristics, guided by a specific focus on graphic, printed matter. During the specifically tuned vocal reading by Lomme, the audience gets to wear a particularly designed sleeping mask.
