Following the successful editions of the Ghent Art Book Fair from 2015 until 2018 at 019 rough-and-tumble docks of Ghent, the fair’s edition 2019 moves to a new location. Art collective 019, Kunsthal Ghent and bookshop/artgallery RIOT present the 5th edition of the Ghent Art Book Fair from 11th – 12th May 2019 at former Caermersklooster, Kunsthal Ghent, an international space for the development and presentation of fine art in Ghent. Showcasing contemporary art books by more than 45 (inter)national independent publishers GABF 19 brings a new extensive program besides book launches and signings. An interesting side program will include international publishers' and designers' lectures, artists' performances, workshops and exhibitions. On the same weekend, at the same location there's also Zine Happening by Les VoiZines taking place.

note: the two festivals collaborate, and share the space, but are still separate in their programming and tables (a symbiotic relationship, just as nature likes it). So the applications are also separate.
