The 36th Biennial Congress of the International Paper Historians (IPH) will be held in Krems/Donau, Austria from August 15 – 20, 2022. The congress, entitled “Paper of Graphic Art”, is the first in Krems, and the second in Austria since 1992. It will be held in co-operation with Krems City Archives and regional monasteries as well as with two exhibitions, one about Kremser Schmidt and one by Nedim Sönmez.
The congress will focus on paper, whatever its source, used as the primary material for Graphic Art world-wide. While books and their paper were the focus of numerous previous IPH meetings, we want to put graphic art on paper into the centre of the congress.
The local arrangements committee will offer special visits and tours of archives and collections as well as historic places.
Opportunity for discussion and exchange will take place at lunches and receptions for congress participants.
For anyone who cannot travel to Krems an online participation will be possible, both as live speaker and as audience.
IPH members may enjoy reduced registration fees.
