More than a decade ago, OFFF was born as a post-digital culture festival, featuring some of the world's most relevant contemporary artists, designers, and media mavens. Since then, it has become a way to understand art, culture, and our constantly evolving way of life. This year, the festival embraces its return to Barcelona, celebrating "Year Zero" by forgetting its illustrious past in order to re-invent itself.
As is the case every year, OFFF produces a sumptuous book that serves as the festival catalogue and an invaluable resource for anyone that wants to know about the bleeding edge of visual culture. OFFF, Year Zero promises to be the most impressive book yet, comprising artwork and essays created specifically for the festival and only available in this book, as well as an exclusive DVD. Every page is die-cut, so the artworks can be hung on the walls of homes and studios. The staggering list of contributing artists and designers includes Stefan Sagmeister, Rick Poyner, Erik Spiekermann, Keetra Dean Dixon, and Vimeo founder Blake Whitman.
