Events • OFFPRINT PARIS presents at the Paris École des Beaux-Arts 130 independent publishers from the areas of photography, art, graphics & design - from teenage love to 'The Future Sausage' or even flux and the abstract

15.11.2017 • OFFPRINT PARIS, which takes place annually in parallel to Paris Photo, is a very inspiring event with fresh ideas and a young audience. The eighth edition took place from 9 thru 12 November, and a total of 130 independent publishing companies or publishers presented books, projects and editions from the areas of art, graphics, photography and design.

Stanley Barker from London presented 'Young Love' by Ewen Spencer. “Today we stay younger longer and become grown up sooner. The successes of making any sort of story around youth is to recognize that we’ve all been there at sometime in our lives. Being a teenager is like a concentrated moment of the human condition — all of the successes and pitfalls all being played out in one messy drama,” says photographer Ewen Spencer.

Japanese artist Hiroshi Takizawa deals with destruction and reproduction in his often abstract works.

"AKAA stands for a multifaceted Africa, which transcends historical boundaries, the voice of which resonates in the four corners of the world carried by the vision of each artist. Our Africa is fluid, complex and permeable. It influences and inspires the world with its capacity to innovate and create. Within a site emblematic of Parisian architecture, we conceived an event where African and global visions come together to draw a new map of the contemporary art scene. AKAA is a collaborative project made possible by men and women who share a common passion: to engage, transmit, and share," says the organizer led by Victoria Mann,...
