Edition Ventile is a non-profit publishing house and releases art books in A4 format that show the underestimated and overlooked. The objects made of paper are not the result of a linear process, but rather of taking detours, stopping for a break with a beautiful view, making some extra rounds and sipping a drink or two. The unexpected works and close collaborations with emerging as well as established artists intend to scratch, entertain and stimulate reflection. The name Ventile – from the Latin “ventus” (wind) – means “valve” and is a metaphor for releasing creative pressure.
