Offprint Paris is an Art Publishing Fair focused on emerging practices in Art.

We give special attention to the evolution of publishing/curating from traditional “spaces” (catalogues, artists books, photobooks, newspapers, but also museums and schools) towards new spaces and artists organizations (independent publishing, self publishing strategies, websites, blogs, social networks, activism, non institutional activities…).

We consider that the topic of “Publishing” can offer a stimulating hermeneutic to analyse the structure and development of the contemporary art world in a context of digitalization of cultures.
