With the second edition of the Stedelijk Book Club: Press! Print! Publish!, the Friday Night at the Stedelijk Museumon 29 September 2017, will be a testament to books. Presentations, performances, and lectures by writers and artists will take place in the newly arranged entrance area and other locations in the building. Two exhibitions will be shown this evening for the first time: De Best Verzorgde Boeken and Always in risk, yet never in danger: Rietveld Graphic Design 2017.

The evening offers an overview of recent, distinctive, and innovative publications in the fields of visual arts, photography, and design. Three different podiums offer a place for writers and artist to discuss their newly published books. In addition, Yannick Bouillis will set up a number of Offprint book tables with the theme 1917–2017. Also, based her presentation at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Radna Rumping has been invited to present a version of her work Get Rid Of Yourself, Again, an essay in the form of an audio installation. The Stedelijk Museum Publications Team will discuss recently published artists’ books with Roma Publishers
Of course the museum library will also be part of the Stedelijk Book Club. Here the museum’s annual book sale takes place, a chance for visitors to purchase numerous publications on contemporary art from both the Netherlands and abroad (including used and brand new copies). In short, the evening is a festive affair for any book lover.
