One Night Stand will take the form of a small “book fair” held in the courtyard of KW Institute for Contemporary Art with diverse international participants presenting print projects, explaining them to whoever asks, and selling them if they want. The common denominator of the participants invited to show their wares as part of One Night Stand is that the results of their serial collaborative experimentations with printed matter results in publications that can be seen as autonomous artworks. Most are independent print projects initiated by artists. One Night Stand includes publications in some way out of the ordinary and worth special attention and unusual either in form, content, or in the attitude and motivation behind them.

The participants are: 
Anita Di Bianco, New York, Corrections and Clarifications
Bent Books, Istanbul
Documentation Celine Duval, Normandie
Eva Weinmayr, London, rumors
Kristina Ask, Copenhagen, DICTIONARY and printed projects
Michalis Pichler, Berlin, publications and Archive of Shredded Catalogues
Rita McBride, Düsseldorf, books
Samandal Comics Magazine, Beirut
Temporary Services, Chicago
Uqbar Foundation, Amsterdam

One Night Stand is an event initiated by BENT, a collaboration between Philippine Hoegen and the Istanbul artist initiative BAS, directed by Banu Cennetoğlu. Banu Cennetoğlu and Philippine Hoegen also present the work of Masist Gül at the Schinkel Pavillon.
