Offprint is an independent publishing fair and forum that focuses on specific thematic areas in numerous locations, featuring publications on art, photography, design, experimental music, open culture and activism. Focusing on discerning practices in these fields, we aim to offer members of these communities a context in which they can maintain their integrity, their critical voice and their social role. Acknowledging the qualitative and unique publishing practices, Offprint also seeks to bring a larger and dedicated audience into contact with these publishers, both online and offline.
From its origins, as an arts organization supporting artist projects as well as mounting the annual Offprint Paris and London publishing fairs, as the Offprint Library project, Offprint stands for the legitimacy of our field and its discourses. At the same time, however, it aims to reconnect the arts with society, putting aside a market imperative for novelty in favor of art-based projects with broader social concerns. Crossing over between disciplines is an integral part of this process.
Offprint is produced by Luma Arles for the Luma Foundation.
