Cosmos-Arles Books

Cosmos-Arles Books, a Rencontres d’Arles satellite event focusing on contemporary practices in photography publication.

A breeding ground for sharing and friendly interaction, Cosmos-Arles-Books welcomes many French and international publishers again this year and offers experimental exhibition and publication projects, conferences, pop-ups, book signings, talks with artists and a host of events featuring photography books.

Artistic direction: Olivier Cablat and Sebastian Arthur Hau.
