“MY GOD; WHAT IF'…!” these words start off the Frankfurter Buchmesse’s talk title at re:publica 2017 in Berlin and it’s about sci-fi! Science fiction is more than simple escapism. It makes the incredible imaginable and whatever is imaginable, can become reality. Those who want more should visit Frankfurter Buchmesse from 11th to 15th of October 2017.
BookTubers, cosplayers, bloggers – the weekend during the Frankfurter Buchmesse promises to be colourful. THE ARTS+, for example, will present a cross-industry fair-within-the-fair for new business models in the culture and creative industries. The area offers an exhibition space, a salon for exclusive discussions, a lab for interactive formats, a catwalk stage for presentations and performances and much more. The ORBANISM SPACE, a digital meeting point curated by Leander Wattig and Christiane Frohmann, will allow BookTubers, bloggers and digital publishers to exchange views. And, on the Sunday of the fair, the Deutsche Cosplay Meisterschaft (DCM), or German Cosplay Team – a colourful highlight for fans of manga, games and comics of all kinds – will take place for the 11th time. Act now to secure private visitor tickets for the weekend of the book fair and gift them as a surprise!
