DescriptionThe third edition of VOLUMES – Independent Art Publishing Fair – returns on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th of November at "Gessnerallee“ in Zürich. The fair will present a fine selection of local and international artists and art books, zines and magazines. This hybrid event will also feature a symposium, a range of performances, exhibitions and workshops.
VOLUMES is the only fair for independent art publishing in Zürich. This year’s edition takes place at Gessnerallee Zürich, a venue for the production and presentation of works in the performing arts in the heart of the city. The „Nordflügel“ of Gessnerallee will host the stands of the publishers and a big workshop table, while in "Stall 6“ a programme of performances co-curated by Anke Hoffmann will take place. Furthermore on Friday night austropop musician Voodoo Jürgens will give a free concert.
For the first time this year, there will be an informal one day symposium: "Publishing as Resistance“, curated by special guest Damian Christinger. This symposium will showcase lectures, presentations and performances by invited specialists and players of the independent publishing scene. Covering different aspects of the historical and current examples of publication as a form of resistance, the event will end with a round table, where the fair's exhibitors and the general public will be invited to take part.
The book exhibition will present two different VOLUMES collections. The first one is the classic "International Open Call", for which zinesters and artists from all around the world send one publication to VOLUMES. The result acts as a snapshot of the current international scene. The second exhibition, the "Zürich Archive" is a new compilation of publications, art books and zines which are connected to the city and offer an insight into different relations and experiences within the location.
Opening hours of the book fair:
Friday, 6pm - 10pm
Saturday, 2pm - 8pm
Can fairy tales speak the truth or the magic? For Spyros Paloukis, a photographer and writer, fairy tales remind us what we tend to forget as we grow older: that the difference between the two, whether it exists or not, doesn't really matter. And although fairy tales are typically considered innocent, they are rather truthful: they are about us and the others, about the human features and the power of nature, the good and the evil, the beauty and the ugliness, the love and the hatred. Like a hero, in the fairy tale of our life we have a chance to find the magic key to our own chamber of wishes.
Το project σχεδιασμού της κάρτας "the storyteller's card" από τον γραφίστα Αιμίλιο Γκαλίπη έγινε τον Ιούλιο του 2015 για λογαριασμό του φωτογράφου, συγγραφέα και εκδότη Σπύρου Παλούκη. Σχεδιάστηκε μια σχεδόν αόρατη επαγγελματική κάρτα, της οποίας τα στοιχεία μπορούν να αποκαλυφθούν υπό κατάλληλη γωνία φωτός ή μέσω ενός μολυβιού. Μια διαδικασία, που παίζει μεταξύ ορατού και αόρατου, όπως και το ίδιο το storytelling που συγκεντρώνει εικόνες, σκέψεις, βιώματα, φωτογραφίες, γράμματα και λέξεις, καθώς όλα συνδέονται και οπτικοποιούν μια ιστορία, όπως ακριβώς συμβαίνει και με ένα μολύβι το οποίο πάνω σε λευκό χαρτί ενώνει τις τελίτσες και αποκαλύπτει σχηματισμούς και κόσμους που μέχρι πρότινος το ανθρώπινο μάτι αδυνατούσε να διακρίνει.

VOLUMES 2015 celebrates independent publishing
The third edition of VOLUMES – Independent Art Publishing Fair – returns on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th of November at «Kunstraum Walcheturm» in Zürich. The fair will present a fine selection of local and international artist and art books, zines and magazines. This hybrid event will also feature a range of performances, exhibitions, screenings, readings and work- shops.
After a successful second edition in November 2014 at the now defunct off-space Perla- Mode, VOLUMES will take place at «Kunstraum Walcheturm», an independent art space in the heart of Zurich that will open its doors to the only fair of its kind in the city.
VOLUMES 2015 will feature a unique exhibition entitled «FOCVS ON ITALY», curated by this year’s special guest BOLO PAPER, who will present a selection of current independent pub- lications from the buzzing Italian scene. Visitors will also get a chance to discover publishers and artists from Switzerland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Greece, Spain and England, who will be showcasing their production in person. The open call international exhibition will act as a sort of snapshot of an even more global production.
VOLUMES is a non-profit organisation which was created and is managed by Anne-Laure Franchette, Gloria Wismer and Patrizia Mazzei to support the DIY-facet of publishing and introduce it to a larger audience. «We want to focus specifically on independent publishers and artists who produce incredible work with very little financial aid. VOLUMES is meant to be a platform for these talented and proactive practitioners. » explains Anne-Laure Franchette. «Books are familiar objects that everyone recognises. It can be less intimidating to pick up a book than to enter a gallery. Books showcase an infinite variety of content and are a great medium for artists to present their work to a wider public. Especially in the con- text of a fair like ours where the producers are in direct contact with the audience.”
At VOLUMES everyone is invited to discover the production of over 50 publishers from all over Europe, enjoy a series of readings by local artists, visit the FOCVS ON ITALY display, discover the experimental cinema show, be surprised by one of the performances, browse though a wide selection of independent art books at the International Exhibition or take part in one of the open workshops. And why not relax with a drink while enjoying the chilled musical programmation.
The fair opens on Friday, November 27th at 6pm at «Kunstraum Walcheturm», Zurich 8004, and will continue on Saturday, the 28th of November, from midday to 8pm.
Spyros Paloukis “Wonderwood” is a photographic representation of some of the most visual moments of Greek mythology and folk culture through contemporary artistic work. “Wonderwood” is an original fairy tale that he wrote in 2012, inspired by the Greek mythology and folk culture, and then he photographically compose and dramatize real living pictures. The structure of its fictional and iconological corpus was entirely based around a folkloric fairytale, which effectively translated by the artist in dark poetic scenes, set in natural landscape and man-made sites of Edessa, his home town in north Greece, and its surrounding region. The models who agreed to pose for his work and wearing traditional dresses are all inhabitants of Edessa. His photographic compositions, are full of symbolisms, iconic figures, secrets and magic.
