London Art Book Fair

For your diary:

The London Art Book Fair will take place from the 23rd to the 25th of September at the Whitechapel Gallery. The fair is devoted to international art publishing, presenting works of artist publishers, galleries, magazines, rare book dealers and colleges together with talks and events.

So, apart from browsing you can also meet photographer Wolfgang Tillmans, signing copies of his new book or watch parts of The Wanderer by Laure Prouvost, which sounds very intriguing (both on Saturday).

"Laure Prouvost's The Wanderer will develop from a fictional story in which a character undergoes a series of increasingly bizarre and mysterious experiences. As he tries to hold onto reality, it seems to melt from under him. Mixing everyday footage with staged interludes, the plot will constantly be undermined by disparate audio/visual elements and misunderstandings. "The Wanderer" is based on a work by artist Rory Macbeth, who has translated a Kafka novella from German into English without any knowledge of the German language and without a dictionary."

Linguists and experimental art lovers should equally enjoy this.
