PrintRoom at Printed Matter’s Virtual Art Book Fair 24 – 28 Feb 2021

We’re participating in the first Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair (PMVABF) from February 24–28, 2021, with more than 400 exhibitors from over 40 countries. 

Over the course of five days, we’ll join the PMVABF marketplace where people can learn about and purchase books from all over the globe. Visitors can attend a large variety of free, live and pre-recorded presentations, organised by Printed Matter as well as the participating artists, publishers and institutions. 

PrintRoom will be available for conversations over our digital table – but also at our Temporary Take Away at the Rijnhoutplein in Rotterdam, where a fair table has been set up for local visitors (one at a time at the moment ;-). 

In the virtual sphere we’ll hang out with befriended publishers, purchase books for the shop and archive and make a wishlist for our future programme. 

Eva Posas, publisher, curator and researcher from Mexico, currently in residence at the Jan van Eyck Academy, opened our offline table today! We met in 2011 at an art book fair in Mexico DC and have been in touch since then, meeting each other annually at art book fairs. 

Feed Me!

Window exhibition by Lisa Blaauwbroek at PrintRoom’s Temporary Take Away – Until 28 February 

Feed Me involves an exchange between Lisa, her instagram audience and local restaurants. Since the second lockdown in the Netherlands, Lisa creates drawings of food she is interested in eating and shares them on instagram. To purchase a drawing, you can order the pictured meal for Lisa at a local restaurant as take-away- and by doing so, support both the artist and the restaurant industry in Rotterdam.
