5th International Artists’ Book Exhibition 2013

May 18 – October, 2013


King St. Stephen Museum in Székesfehérvár, Hungary is a county museum with a range of rich collections (archaeology, ethnography, local history, modern and contemporary art). The city is about 60 kilometers from Budapest. The museum started to work in the field of artists’ books twenty-five years ago.

In 1987 we organized the First International Artists’ Book Exhibition. There were about 300 works presented and later donated to the museum by the artists, thus establishing the first and still the only artists’ book collection in Hungary owned by a museum. As the years went by, our collection increased and we entered into relations with artists, archives and centers (e.g. Franklin Furnace Archives, New York and Guy Bleus’s Administration Centre, Wellen).
