For the Hallenbau Festival, students and teachers organize an extraordinary artists’ book fair in the atriums of the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe. Seven universities, twenty-one players from the international and national artists’ book scene and over thirty students come together and present their artists’ books for sale. The BookBauFestival takes place in the context of the economy, sustainable production, and the exhibition and collection of artists' books. From HfG, the initiatives BookBoi*, KLaK, the student publication Munitionsfabrik as well as the magazines Umbau and MAS take part. The joint library of ZKM and HfG exhibits a selection of historical books. ZKM, Städtische Galerie and Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe open their storage facilities and make catalogs from three decades available. The program of the BookBauFestival offers workshops for children and adults, readings as well as round table discussions with protagonists of the scene. The BookBauFestival was conceived in an interdisciplinary way with students of the seminar “artists’ books with photography” and Prof. Susanne Kriemann.
