Paris Ass Book Fair

The sixth edition of Paris Ass Book Fair will take place 17-19 May 2024 at Palais de Tokyo. Creators, authors, art lovers and collectives coming from all over the world will come together to present books, zines and every kind of editions.

Paris Ass Book Fair was born from the desire to give an important place to marginal and untimely sensibilities, desires and aspirations, and to affirm a joyful approach to art and publishing, a taste for provocation and the absurd, a joy in stimulating minds and bodies.

Every year since 2017, the fair has brought together dozens of artists, booksellers, publishers and zinesters around this commitment: to show printed matter as a medium in its own right, a vehicle for creativity, individual and collective expression. The publications and projects presented at the fair adopt formats at the crossroads of many fields: fanzines, artists’ books, magazines, clothing, multiples, novels, essays, posters, etc.

The fair is curated with the constant concern of privileging those who have limited access to the market and whose creations are not found in the usual distribution circuits; as well as those who give voice to experiences, questionings, desires, which go against the majority norms, and which can open our eyes. As a consequence, the fair gives a very large place to LGBTQI+ people and offers a platform to their questioning and expressions. It is about contributing to making our society more fair and inclusive—while having fun.

A place for sharing tastes and ideas, the fair proposes a programme of talks and performances, as well as special projects.
