The fourth edition of VOLUMES – Independent Art Publishing Fair – returns on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th of November at the Helmhaus in Zürich. The fair will present a fine selection of local and international artists and art books, zines and magazines. This hybrid event will also feature a range of performances, readings, presentations, exhibitions, and workshops.

VOLUMES is the only fair for independent art publishing in Zürich. This year’s edition takes place at the Helmhaus, a museum in the old part of the city. On the two floors of the museum, the visitors will be able to browse through the publishers' stands, take part in a series of free workshops, attend a programme of performances, talks and exhibitions.

This year's special focus "MEXA!", curated by Paloma Ayala and Adriana Dominguez, will showcase Mexico's independent publishing scene, through a book exhibition and a conference.
VOLUMES's classic "International Open Call" exhibition, for which zinesters and artists from all around the world donate one publication, will present a snapshot of the current international DIY publishing scene.
