Unique book exhibition Book Me focuses every year on theatre, film, photography, dance and music.
In 2017 the exhibition will took place in DUP39 (entrance is from Charvátova 10, Prague 1)
20. – 22. 4. 2017
This year we are going to present all the topics taught in the Academy of performing Arts – film, theatre, music, dance and photography.
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. 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. In 2015 we were proudly presenting 33 international publishers and their masterpieces about film. In 2016 we came back to the theatre topic.
