For the fourth time the Independent Publishers 
and Zine Fair Vienna will be hosted by Kunsthalle 
Wien at Museumsquartier, June 28 to 30, 2013. The 
successes of the previous fairs have resulted in 
this year's event expanding to three days, and 
will again see more than sixty local and 
international exhibitors and artists exhibiting, 
selling, and exchanging their works. Zines, 
posters, t-shirts, prints, magazines, printed 
ephemera, art books and art magazines will be 
displayed and sold.

Alongside the exhibitors, ten artists (including 
Matthew Brannon, AA Bronson, Kerstin Cmelka, 
Sture Johannesson David Jourdan, Stefanie 
Sargnagel, and others) will punctuate the fair 
with editions and interventions-some in the form 
of performances, some as prints, others as 
t-shirts. As a special exhibition, Hubert Winter, 
the Viennese gallerist, will curate a selection 
of art books and ephemera from his vast 
collection of works from some of the best-known 
'60s and '70s conceptualists. Parallel to the 
fair, a series of talks and discussions by a 
selection of expert speakers will touch on 
emerging practices and debates within zine 
culture, and will illuminate issues relating to 
independent publishing today.

Following the opening of the fair on Friday, the 
scene will shift to Kunsthalle Wien at 
Karlsplatz, where the spirit of the fair will 
continue well into the night with a party for the 
exhibitors and fair-goers, with music by Norbert 
& his last unicorn. Zines, artists, publishers, 
drinks, and dancing!

With countless book and Zine fairs around the 
world, the Kunsthalle Wien's Independent 
Publishers and Zine Fair Vienna is a unique 
international event that aims to set itself apart 
with a particular dedication to a thriving local 
publishing scene in Vienna, pairing it with 
like-minded international makers for a series of 
productive exchanges and engagements.
