I Never Read,
Art Book Fair Basel 2017

Kaserne Basel

14 – 17 June 2017




“I never read, I just look at pictures”, is a quote from Andy Warhol, which adorns a large number of posters on the Internet. The Art Book Fair Basel, now in its sixth year, has appropriated the first part of the quotation for its title, leaving open the question as to whether visitors to the exhibition will not only not read, but also just look at the pictures – or whether, as is so often the case, the truth is somewhere in the middle.


From 14 to 17 June 2017, alongside Art Basel, around 100 national and international publishing companies and independent publishers, writers, artists, and designers will gather in Kaserne Basel to present their latest publications and printed materials. The fair is a platform uniting text, contemporary art production, and printed media. This year’s exhibitors include Onomatopee, Sedici Verlag and Valiz among many others. Various talks, performances, and music are also part of the programme. Entrance to the fair is free.
