Book, artist book and research resources for curators and artists became, in the last couple of years, a great focus at Galeria Posibilă. Through our editorial projects we seek to contribute in developing the art publication sector in Romania covering a particular interest on the concept and thematic perspective, in nature and landscape. In 2011, "Biblioteca de galerie" was developed, a resource space for students and artists specialised in the field of landscape theory and practices related to nature. This year, the library was enriched through the journey made by the gallery's team at Salon für Kunstbuch in Vienna, during the opening of the exhibition "Landscape" at Fotogalerie Wien (03.09-06.10.2018). Salon für Kunstbuch is the concept of Bernhard Cella as a model of bookshop integrated in his studio, as a result of his ongoing preoccupation for the economic and sculptural framework in which artist's books can be used as an artistic material. // NO-ISBN. net Bernhard Cella is an Austrian artist with an interest in the general economic and sculptural conditions under which artist's books can serve as artistic material. To this end, he devised in his studio the Salon für Kunstbuch [Salon for Artbooks], a ‘1:1 scale model of a bookshop’. Since 2007, no less than 15,000 artist's books have been collected and are constantly rearranged into unaccustomed combinations, so that they enter into material dialogue. Buying and selling become part of Cella´s independent artistic practice. For Galeria Posibilă, Cella will present the second, expanded edition of 'NO-ISBN On Self Publishing', a book which investigates extraordinary books that withdraw from the international book trade. A register contains 1,800 items that have three features in common: they are recent, printed on paper, and circulate without an ISBN. He will introduce no-isbn. net, an new platform & online archive for NO-ISBN and self-publishing. „Cella inscribes himself as an artist into the economic sphere, he re-stages service and entrepreneurship as foundations of his own artistic practice." (E. Steinbrügge) Bernhard Cella, born in 1969, lives in Vienna and Triest. Studies in fine art and stage design at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and University of Fine Arts Hamburg. http://salon-fuer-kunstbuch.at/
