Central Vapeur 12

From 17 to 31/03

Coop/Strasbourg/Grand Est

Our 12th edition shares the theme Beyond Borders with that of the Rencontres de l'illustration. In concrete terms, this means a dialogue between Berlin's Henning Wagenbreth and Samuel Bas (who signed our poster), the Borders exhibition as part of the Creative Europe project, Invisible Lines, guests of the fair such as Squash Team, Colorama Print, Rotopol and Mazookas, collectives and editions from across the Rhine. And also about thirty other (micro-)publishers and workshops invited to the fair, which will be held at Garage Coop and CRIC, a stone's throw from the German border (26-27/03). There will be the now classic poster tours on the Quai des Bateliers with Elizabeth Holleville, the Battlestar, Televapeur will be back with even more cats and you will be able to see a real invention of the tradition: the Kakemonos parade.
