It is hard to define what exactly an artist book is. Unlike an art book, catalog or monograph that tend to showcase artworks created in another medium, the term "artist book" refers to publications that have been conceived as artworks in their own right.

The talk aims to present the history of artist books by looking at some of the most significant artists of this medium, focusing on the 1970s and continuing the path to contemporary works.

Saghi Parkhideh will lead.

1. The term “ Artist book” / What is artist book?
2. Artist book though late 19th et early 20th century
3. The blooming: 1970
4. Contemporary artist book
