More about One Thousand Books:
One Thousand Books is a series of experimental art book events in Copenhagen celebrating the dynamic and rapidly growing independent publishing scene to the Danish and international public. So far there has been three iterations of the festival, each investigating different aspects of that scene: In 2013 and 2014 One Thousand Books took place inside a functioning REMA1000 supermarket. In 2016 it moved into three art institutions and included an exhibition, a seminar and networking events. The aim of One Thousand Books is to showcase books as accessible yet elaborate art objects and to serve as a platform where actors in the field of book making can meet, connect and share ideas and perspectives on current issues in the frame of publishing, editing and exhibiting books.
