Fruit Exhibition is the annual independent art book fair of Bologna. Open to the public, Fruit Exhibition includes artists' books, catalogs, graphic design projects.
What does publishing mean? What is a publication? What are its characteristics and its limits? What are the words and terms we can use to define it? These are the questions that we keep asking ourselves, finding different answers every time. The result is an extremely fluid scenario, just like the contemporary means of visual expression, capable of stretching across very different settings and boundaries, and often a step ahead of the themes that will become the new cultural trends.
Fruit Exhibition 7 is composed by a market featuring 120 international publishers, talks, performances, workshops and exhibitions.
To homage our ability to smile when life double-cross us, this year’s focus of FRUIT EXHIBITION will be on humour.
