e-flux book co-op parked at MoMA PS1 until May 2012

Costly and often monopolistic approaches to the distribution of art books has resulted in a situation in which it is common for not only the author but also the publisher to receive little to no revenue from book sales. As a possible alternative, e-flux presents the book co-op: a mobile bookstore with over 600 titles on contemporary art, theory, and criticism from over 100 international art centers, artist-run spaces, and independent publishers. Housed in a refurbished aluminum Airstream trailer, this temporary model for more equitable distribution in art publishing displays and sells books on behalf of the cooperative’s member institutions.

e-flux book co-op was first presented in the Summer of 2011 at Art Basel as part of a larger e-flux project. It was brought to the New York Art Book Fair in the Fall of 2011 where it was located in the courtyard at MoMA PS1. At the fair’s close, MoMA PS1 invited the book co-op to stay in the courtyard where it will live until May 2012.
