On May 25th + 26th 2012, C/O Berlin, International Forum For Visual Dialogues, will be presenting the C/O Berlin Book Days publishing event for the second time.

The program includes book presentations, screenings, discussions, seminars and book signings. In the courtyard of the historic Postfuhramt, more than 20 publishers will be introducing their latest publications on the subject of photography.

The C/O Berlin Book Days will take place by the occasion of the opening of the Larry Clark Retrospective and the Rafał Milach exhibition „7 Rooms on May 25th at 7 pm.

After the success of the first Book Days in 2011, this year C/O Berlin offers once again a platform for both young and established publishing houses to present their newest publications and encourages exchange in the field of self publishing. C/O Berlin dedicates special attention to the phenomenon of self publishing and questions the history and the status quo of this still recent trend in discussions. In addition, C/O Berlin supports five young self publishing houses with the realisation of their projects and provides their presence at the C/O Berlin Book Days. The critic and artist Joachim Schmid curates this section.

The participating publishers, magazines and artists are, amongst others: 1/2 Zines, ABC, ALBUM – Magazin für Fotografie, Bücher & Hefte, doyoureadme? .

From Photo to Book
2 Seminars on the C/O Berlin Book Days
27 May 2012 . 11 am – 4 pm

„Aside from exhibitions, book publications are the most effective and important way for photographers to present their works to the public. The series of images and the format and paper can often be assembled quickly—and thanks to modern technology, high-quality printing is affordable. But how does one get the work to the people interested in buying it? What price should one charge? Is the process of creating a book really so easy? In the two seminars, internationally renowned experts offer photographers and artists detailed guidance for planning the path to a finished publication. Both of these four-hour seminars will equip participants with enough knowledge and practical experience to successfully publish their own books.“ (Press release from C/O Berlin)

Seminar #1:
„Art Publishing Strategies“ with Yannick Bouillis

27 May 2012 . 11 am – 4 pm

Yannick Bouillis is the founder of both Offprint Paris and the Amsterdam Art Book Fair, currently the two most important trade fairs for photographic and graphic arts publications. In this seminar, he will address questions of content and outline a range of strategies for print and online publications. He will place a special focus on important post-production aspects: distribution, pricing, and marketing.

Seminar #2:
„Self Publish Your Photobook“ with Bruno Ceschel

27 May 2012 . 11 am – 4 pm

Bruno Ceschel is an author, curator, lecturer in photography at the Camberwell College of Arts in London, and founder of “Self Publish, Be Happy”—an organization that promotes self-published photo books internationally. His seminar will focus on the current model of self-publishing, and will cover aspects ranging from conception of an idea to the selection of images and design of the publication.

The seminars will take place simultaneously and are both in English.
Each seminar is limited to 15 participants.
