European International Book Art Biennale
2nd edition Romania
August- September 2012
„We live in the 21st century, the century of technology, of computers and mass media, all of which are separating us and our children from the written word.
In a few years, if this direction of our civilized world continues, books will disappear.”
The European International Book Art Biennale has been promoting and encouraging any unconventional attitudes about books.
It deals with book-objects, book-installations, one-offs, author's books, artist's books, writer's books, experimental and limited editions, fine press books, etc.
The core of the project is an exhibition composed of works selected in a competition and made by the artists invited by the organisers.
After the premiere (which usually took place in Satu- Mare Art Museum) the exhibition is shown in many prestigious venues (art galleries and libraries) throughout Romania and abroad.
Carefully and unconventionally designed catalogues containing colour pictures of exhibited items, artists' short biographies and opinions about their work, various essays and reviews, a lot of pieces of useful information valuable both for ordinary book lovers and those ones professionally dealing with books, are very important for promoting the idea of book art.
