    Curators: participants of the Curator's Platform, mentored by Ana Kovačić, assisted by Mateja Kuka.

    Participants of this year's Curator's platform conducted a research of a very interesting andactual field . They were divided into six different groups which were dealing with: definitionof artist's book, historical development, visual poetry, contemporary artist's book anddesigner - curator based collaboration. Through numerous examples the exhibition will show the results of their research.
    There are many different definitions of what an artist's book is and many different ways inwhich it can take form. What makes the artist's book a specific medium when comparedto other forms of artistic expression is the fact that one can hold it, read it, touch it andconsequently the artist can achieve an intimate relationship with the audience. The artistsperceive it as a space they can fill and in doing so, transfer their ideas, attitudes, intimatereflections or speak out loud about topics they are interested in.
