Sint-Vincentiusstraat 24, Antwerp
BOOOOOKS is a year-long programme and space in Antwerp dedicated to the exploration of contemporaneity through the showcase of independent publishing. Each season BOOOOOKS invites a leading publisher working in the contemporary cultural field and presents a cross-section of their work. The guiding principle is the book: as material object resulting from reflections on both content and form; as idea and symbol of the human necessity to tell stories.
Titles from each invited publisher are for sale in-store and to enjoy in our garden. All proceeds from the sale of publications go directly toward supporting our programme.
Our space combines a bookstore and a cultural platform for the presentation of publications, artists’ talks, performances, lectures and workshops. The bookstore is specialised in arts publications, printed matter and multiples. The design of its interior consists of a structure by architect Piet Crevits and furniture by artist Perry Roberts.
