Book Machine – from February 20 to March 11, 2013, Centre Pompidou, Paris – is an event dedicated to the process of book production in the grandest sense. In essence, the commitment of the artist to the realization of their book or catalog is an extension of their body of work, and this results in the creation of what we call the artist’s book.
At the heart of this engagement and from the depths of the Forum at Centre Pompidou, there will be an atelier and office of production open to the public. Visitors will witness a daily array of visual artists, writers and designers creating their books. Around this production, there will also be a live feed projection of the printing process and visitors can attend various events, lectures, discussions, screenings and performances connected with the concept of the artist’s book.
