It documents the the Moving Pavilion project, a series of uncommissioned artworks by international artists painted on trains running into the Venice train station during the starting week of the Venice Biennale 2017.

Artist and curator Jens Besser (DE) gained access to the top secret materials and produced the publication.

The Unlock Showcase brings you North American railroad cultures

One of the highlights of the Unlock Book Fair is the Unlock Showcase, a bookstore offering limited and rare publications. This year the focus of the fair is on North American railroad cultures, and the Showcase will display a fascinating selection of independent and obscure North American publications on the topic.

For this year’s Showcase we have the help of Bombing Science, whose team is taking care of the overseas shipment logistics from their Canadian headquarters.
