98weeks has been invited to participate in the Thessaloniki biennial (September 18–December 18, 2011). Following 98weeks Bazaar presented at the No Soul For Sale at Tate Modern where we invited artists to contribute by bartering their artworks for other items or favours, we’d like to extend a similar call for participation in Thessaloniki.

Throughout the biennial period, 98weeks will run a stand containing mainly publications. People are invited to browse, sell and settle eventual exchange with an attending stand keeper. With focus on publications, on published material or publications you’ve selected for one reason or another and that you’d like to extend to a larger audience.

If you would like to take part in the Bazaar, please send us a description of your book by August 6 at
Material will subsequently be sent to Thessaloniki directly. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch should you require additional information. We’re looking forward to hear from you!

This project is set in the framework of 98weeks' research on historical publications and artists’ books - since April 2010.
For the biennial, 98weeks will publish a selection of the talks and interventions on the "A-Hilal" and Shi'r publications.
