Indiecon 2022—Independent Publishing Festival

Repetition is not a Repeat

Author: Clara Weinreich

For the ninth time, Indiecon 2022—Independent Publishing Festival opens its doors from September 2nd to 4th for visitors. This year the festival presents its most international line-up ever in its history. Guests from Lagos, Bukarest, and Singapore will present their publications at this year’s Oberhafen location, Factory Hammerbrooklyn and create visibility for diverse perspectives and realities across the globe.

This year’s event topic is Repetition is not a Repeat. On one hand, it points to the situation many publishers face consistently in this field of work, moving between repetition and innovation. At the same time, society also must continuously renegotiate how it wants to shape its future. What can remain and what must change? What do we want to maintain and what do we want to leave behind us? Printed publications concentrate social movements, and discourses are stoked through mediums such as journalism, design, art and literature. Indiecon brings the most exciting Indie publishers from all over the world to Hamburg.

“Indiecon is about community and exchange. Digital formats can not replace a real-life gathering. For the publishers, it’s a chance to meet old and new friends from all over the world, learn something new and get instant feedback on their publications.”, says Malte Spindler, Indiecon co-founder and partner at Die Brueder Publishing. “Visitors can explore independent publications they might never find in their filter bubble and get in direct contact with the people who made the publications. Indiecon is about exposure for publishers with a message apart from the mainstream. Their work needs to be seen and discussed to rethink and improve our society.”
