Könyvtér (Bookspace) is a thematic program series of Labor to collect and present books, journals, fanzines and other publications related to contemporary art. By involving different segments of contemporary culture, the primary aim of Könyvtér is to make the boundaries of art theory and practice the object of permanent reconsideration. Könyvtér offers various programs from readings and workshops to programs for children related to the above mentioned themes – artist books, readers, fanzines, archives. Ignoring the good old “silence please” library rule, the project’s intention is rather to create a suitable atmosphere for informal professional discussions.
Publications on view: magazines from the field of social sciences, readers compiled for the Free School for Art Theory and Practice 2006-2009, design theory and typography related books collected on the occasion of the Typopass. Critical design and conceptual typography project, fanzines, publications by tranzit.hu, Studio of Young Artists.
