Art institutions and small publishing houses in the Netherlands offer a wide variety of publications that focus on contemporary art and art theory. Often with a particular emphasis in subject matter, these publishers contribute in a significant and meaningful way to the international discourse of contemporary art. With the Sunday Book Fair – organized for the first time at the museum – the Stedelijk aims to be a platform for the presentation of recently published artists books, readers, catalogues, encyclopedia’s, etc. inviting publishing houses of a modest scale to pitch their new books in the Auditorium of the Stedelijk, followed by a book fair in the museum café. So if you are looking for the latest book in the shop, come in and find out!

On this occasion, Roma Publications will present its 150th issue, ‘No mirror can guard you’ by Nickel van Duijvenboden. The author will give a short reading in the auditorium. Afterwards, also the artists Ringel Goslinga and Irene Kopelman will be present to sign their latest Roma books.
