THE ARTS+ marketplace for value chains across cultural & creative businesses


THE ARTS+, a fair for new business models in the cultural and creative industries, is celebrating its premiere at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair, 19-23 October, targeting cultural and creative professionals as well as publishers and software/IT companies. Professionals from all areas of culture and the creative scene, brands, developers, publishers, technology companies and media representatives will meet in Frankfurt to share ideas through presentations, exhibitions, a laboratory, workshops and conferences, creating a unique new network.

The democratisation of content through digitisation and the subsequent questions on how to deal with intellectual property has created new opportunities: museums digitise their archives and make them accessible to everyone, all year round, 3D printers reproduce miniatures of designer furniture, technology companies use customers’ mobile photos for worldwide campaigns and galleries sell their art via Instagram. At the same time, self-publishing has become much simpler and cheaper due to digital progress. Indeed, all communication has become faster and more visual. For all forms of media, diverse sales platforms ranging from concept stores to blogs and social media to entire culture stores have appeared. As the world’s largest rights marketplace and one of the most important European cultural events, the Frankfurt Book Fair has now created a platform for this: starting in 2016, THE ARTS+ will be the first marketplace for all cultural content. It will also host a global think tank for the creative society.

THE ARTS+ will comprise presentations from publishers, special areas for thematic workshops and talks, salons and a centre for rights trading. THE ARTS+ is directed at anyone who produces, manages, exhibits, publishes, presents, remixes or refines cultural content – publishers, designers, architects, directors and curators of museums and institutions, software developers, media representatives, brand managers, artists, photographers and politicians.

The new marketplace will be located in Hall 4.1 on the fair grounds.

Audiovase @ Kickstarter

3D Printed Vases


Libero Rutilo creates a collection of design vases combining upcycling and 3D printing technology. The project gives a second chance to such an unvalued object as a PET bottle. The vase itself represents an external shell with an inner neck fillet, so it can be screwed onto a bottle like a cap. The collection includes four different designs: “Spider vase”, “Sinuous Vase”, “Lace Vase” and "Knitted Vase". The vases are available on Tessa’s Curated Boutique.
