“Friends with Books: Art Book Fair Berlin”, as Europe's premier festival for contemporary artists' books and periodicals by artists and art publishers, takes place for the fourth time, and Hatje Cantz is also there. You will find our new release at the booth X1-3 where we are looking forward to your visit!

In addition, we'd like to draw your attention to a special program schedule that takes part on Saturday, 23rd September, 16:00–17:00 h

On the Passion of Publishing and Collecting Art Books:
Publisher Holger Liebs and art expert Albrecht Kastein, who collects art books obsessively, discuss the future of the art book medium.The art book is alive. More than ever, it is also an object to collect. Where lies its attraction and what are its limits? [program in German]

As editor-in-chief of Monopol from 2010 to 2016, Liebs established the brand as one of the leading German-language contemporary art magazines. From 2001 to 2010 the art historian was editor of the arts section of Süddeutsche Zeitung. Prior to that, he worked as a freelance journalist, writing for magazines such as Die Zeit, taz. die tageszeitung and Frieze.

Dr. Albrecht Kastein is a urologist, as well as one of Germany's most important art collectors. Kastein is involved in the estate of the prematurely deceased Luxembourger painter, Michel Majerus, as well as other non-profit organizations. He notably funded a charity auction for director Christoph Schlingensief. Kastein is also one of the country's leading artist book experts in the public art discourse. He lives and works in Berlin.
