Art lovers, beware! This weekend you can buy art books and other artistic publications @ WIELS, the Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels. The books will be sold by collectors, publishers and artists themselves. Personally, I could spend half of my salary on art books but that isn’t really an option. I have to admit that some of the books they usually sell in the Wiels bookshop seem a little bit too complicated for me. They are mainly essays and philosophical art books, that require a lot of foreknowledge. I think (and hope) that the art book fair will be a little bit more accessible to a larger public. From what I’ve seen on the website, there will be books in English, Dutch and French. Anyway, I give myself permission to buy one book 😆 , so I will go take a look.
Opening Friday 11/09/2015 06:00 pm – 09:00 pm, Saturday & Sunday 12 – 13/09/2015 11:00 am – 06:00 pm.
