MABB – Malmö Artist’s Book Biennial is a Swedish and International exhibi­tion and selling platform for art works that are inspired by the structural and conceptual properties of the book form.

MABB was arranged for the first time 2018, and invited both national and inter­national artists, publishers, booksellers and organizations to participate in the first International fair for artists’ books in Sweden – an art genre that is attracting more and more attention.

MABB2020 was ment to take place 8–10 May 2020, with the public fair at Victoria-teatern on Friday and Saturday. Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are forced to postpone next MABB and make MABB2022 6–8 May 2022. The seminars this year had a special interest in the libraries task of collecting, preserving and providing artist’s books.

As 2018 and 2020, MABB2024 fair will be held at Victoriateatern in the centre of Malmö, 24–26 May. The 100 years old theatre has visitors from all ages and backgrounds. It is a nationally recognized scene that mixes film, theater, stand-up, music etc. It is situated within a 5-minute walk from Triangeln train station, with a 30-minute connection to Denmark and Copenhagen International Airport.

In connection with the fair, there will be a talk at the bookstore Bokvärlden Wednesday 22.5 and a performance evening Thursday 23.5 at Galleri Ping-Pong. MABB2024 will also feature a day (Sunday 26.5) of seminars at Victoriateatern.
