CALL FOR ENTRIES: participate with your books in the 4th edition of the WildBookMarket at Re: Rotterdam Art Fair 6-10 February 2013

ARTISTS, PUBLISHERS, MAGAZINES AND CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS are invited to participate in the 2013 edition of the WildBookMarket at the Re: Rotterdam Art Fair from 6-10 February 2013! This 4th edition of the WBM during Art Rotterdam will take place at a new and exciting location, the Re: Rotterdam Art Fair at Blaak 16-18, Rotterdam (next to Willem de Kooning Academy, close to station Blaak).
Last year, the Re: Rotterdam Art Fair had its successful premiere as a side programme of Art Rotterdam. It focused on solo presentations of more than 175 individual artists, and managed to draw more than 9000 visitors.

By relocating the WBM to the centrally located venue of the Re: Rotterdam Art Fair , WBM and you as a bookseller will be able to profit greatly from the visibility and popularity of the Re: Rotterdam Art Fair during those busy days. This year more than ever, the WBM will be the perfect opportunity to browse through, buy or exchange rare art books.
