SPRINT-Independent Publishers and Artists’ Books Salon is an international exhibition dedicated to independent publishing and artists’ books born in 2013 from an idea of O’ non-profit association and curated by Dafne Boggeri. A transversal and sustainable platform for cultural debate since its inception, that inaugurates its 10th edition this year.

SPRINT is a non-profit artist-led project devoted to investigate – in a sustainable environment and inclusive gaze – the multiple ways in which contents, supports and languages emerge in publishing. Small projects and complex productions that approach experimentation, researching and archives with attitude are welcome. Books as hooks to be hauled down new paths, discover alternative perspectives and approach multiple voices, often stressing forms and formats, in a dance of the perimeter and symphony of the sequence, performing pages.

Every last weekend of November SPRINT—Independent Publishers and Artists’ Books Salon’s program includes an Art Book Fair [SMABF], Talks, Workshops, Exhibitions, Performances and a Fundraising Party.

For this edition, SPRINT presents a selection of small self-produced experiences and more structured publishing houses, all with a common root: the freshness of the projects and the research of contents, formats, languages, insights and attitude.

The full schedule of activities is available on the website of SPRINT.
