Lodret Vandret co-founders Flemming Ove Bech and Johan Rosenmunthe's artist talk 'One Thousand Books - Identifying and joining an international network of artists through publishing'
Sunday 25 Nov, 15:15
Lodret Vandret will share their experiences starting an independent imprint and finding and engaging with collaborators, peers and colleagues and how this led them to initiating One Thousand Books - their own platform for exhibition and dissemination of artists' publications.
Lodret Vandret is an independent imprint based between Copenhagen and Berlin. We are interested in combining different sensibilities and thus, collaboration is at the very core of our practice both when working with individual artists and on group projects. Each year we exhibit at the largest art book fairs to actively be a part of the ever growing international art publishing community.
An offspring of Lodret Vandret is One Thousand Books; events conceived to enable and cultivate community around independent and self publishing. Through book fairs in supermarkets, exhibitions in public art spaces, workshops and seminars One Thousand Books has tried to challenge traditional ways of exploring the artists' book.
Lodret Vandret was founded in 2010 by artists Flemming Ove Bech and Johan Rosenmunthe and operates not-for-profit.
