House of the book presents the exhibition ‘Dignidad’. Artists’ books by María Verónica San Martín from 21 September 2019 to 5 January 2020

Artists’ books, an installation and a performance. These works can see seen in the exhibition ‘Dignidad’ by multidisciplinary Chilean (book) artist María Verónica San Martín (born 1981). Her work shows a passionate involvement with the recent political past of her native country Chile. The years of the dictatorship of Pinochet (1973-1990) and its long lasting effects on present day society play a prominent role in her work.

Exhibition ‘Masterpieces’

12 July- 6 October 2019

This summer the oldest book museum in the world will display some of its most important masterpieces. The often fragile medieval manuscripts, early printed books and modern artists’ books are normally kept in dark, cool storage areas. Parchment and paper are so sensitive to light that the books can only be shown to the public on rare occasions.
