Why such a fair?
The autonomous fair is, first of all, a space for meeting and discussion dedicated to alternative and independent publications. Zines, magazines, brochures and books published by different collectives, posters and postcards and other materials await you for two days in Cluj, at Casa Tranzit. We also propose presentations and discussions about different autonomous editorial projects. We thus want to encourage independent publishing initiatives and illustrate the necessity to develop critical alternatives to the dominant models, the need for establishing autonomous spaces for meeting and reflections.
