The first edition of the Brussels Ass Book Fair will take place at KANAL-Centre Pompidou from 29 November to 1 December 2024. A call for participants is now open until 30 June 2024 and can be accessed via the form below.


After six successful editions in Paris, the Paris Ass Book Fair is joining forces with KANAL-Centre Pompidou for the first Brussels Ass Book Fair. This new Brussels-based fair dedicated to independent art publishing will host some fifty exhibitors, bringing together local, national, and international creators, authors, enthusiasts, and collectives to present books, fanzines, and editions of all kinds.


The Brussels Ass Book Fair focuses on individuals and groups who may not have easy access to the commercial market and whose productions cannot be found via usual distribution channels. It welcomes editorial endeavors that, through humour, provocation, or radicalism, explore experiences, questions, and desires that challenge mainstream norms. With this in mind the fair gives prominent space to LGBTQIA+ participants and projects, and acts as a forum for their reflections and expressions. The fair’s ambition is clear: to contribute with joy and irreverence to making our society fairer and more inclusive.


The Brussels Ass Book Fair will be held on both floors of K1, KANAL’s temporary venue at 1 Avenue du Port in Brussels. Alongside the fair, featuring exhibitors selling their editions, there will be a public programme, live events, and some special projects.
