Book meets Paper meet Print


Until 2015, the traditional bookbindery „Fettinger“ was active in Bad Goisern. Their workshop, revitalised in the Hand.Werk.Haus Salzkammergut, is used by Elisabeth Öggl, artist and specialist for books in an artistic context, during her residency, where she works with found materials materials from Stephaneum, a vacant school building in Bad Goisern.

She will meetsAltmünster artist Marie Liebl, who creates BOOK OF SCALA in the Hand.Werk.Haus bookbindery, as an artistic chronicle of the residencies in the year of the European Capital of Culture. Elisabeth provides Bundesgymnasium Bad Ischl with initial insights into the art of bookbinding. At a public workshop she presents the art of box making. The Saalfelden bookbinder Christian Fuchs, a specialist in contemporary bookbinding and its communication, also offers a workshop for Bundesgymnasium Bad Ischl.

Finally, an overview of the world of artists‘ books is provided by a lecture and an exhibition by Susanne Padberg (Galerie Druck & Buch).
