Artpool in Bremen

Artpool – Active Archive of Contemporary Art in Hungary

The Artpool Archive, founded by Hungarian artist György Galántai and Julia Klaniczay in Budapest in 1979, is one of the seven important European archives that have made it their mission to collect, to archive and to preserve the artistic materials generated by the new alternative art movements since the 1960s. This exhibition presents an overview not only of the history and activities of Artpool, but also of its unparalleled collection of Eastern European artists’ publications, ranging from Samizdat to Sound Poetry.

Artists’ Books for Everything

Artists’ books represent a particular phenomenon within contemporary art. Since their emergence in the 1950s they have become established worldwide as a new type of art. Artists’ books are autonomous works of art in the form of books. Works of art in large editions, they exemplify the democratisation of art as well as the mobility and interconnectedness of artists.

More than 400 submissions from all around the world arrived, amongst others from Korea and Colombia. They form a multifarious pool of artists´ books the project can draw from.
