Our goal is to create an international platform based in Central Europe that will provide readers with high–quality books in the fields of performing arts. Each year we prepare an exhibition centred at one of these fields. In 2013 we had firstly decided to organize Book Me exhibition. First exhibition Book Me was dedicated to theatre publications. Next year it covered history of dance and music, theoretical reflections and also discussions about practices. Last year at Book Me we were proudly presenting 33 international publishers and their masterpieces about film.
