Under the motto Reading Art, we are launching Vienna’s first art book fair at mumok. We are bringing the book as an art form into the museum for a day and turning mumok into a meeting place for lovers of books and art. Selected representatives of the experimental and independent artists’ book scene from Austria and Germany will present a crosssection of their work. Discover the rich diversity of artists’ books and get to know the artists and publishers. A lecture, a reading performance and film screenings complete the program.

The italian artist Salvatore Viviano lives and works in vienna. In May 2014 he founded the One Work Gallery, which ran till December 2017. His reading performance is based on his book The One Work Gallery Diary, recently published by Harpune Verlag. It’s a kind of diary about the gallery, the city of vienna, the art scene and the life as an artist.
