LemonMelon will be at Why do you publish? Independent Art Book Fair
98 WEEKS, Beirut, Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th February 2012
WDYP is an art book fair with a focus on arts and culture publishing in the Middle East and beyond. Over a period of 4 days, publishing houses, artists and writers will meet in Beirut to present their current production and to probe ideas and ways of working with printed matter through a series of panels and events.
In line with 98weeks’s approach to artistic research 'Why do you publish' is more than a commercial book fair. It looks at historical and contemporary examples of printed matter as vehicle for political, social and artistic experimentation.
