Frankfurter Buchmesse 2022

The 74th Frankfurter Buchmesse (19–23 October 2022) reaffirmed its position as the most important international meeting point for the book and media industry: with 93,000 trade visitors and 87,000 private visitors, Frankfurter Buchmesse was well frequented. Over 4,000 exhibitors from 95 countries were present in the halls, in the Literary Agents & Scouts Centre (LitAg) and in the new Workstations. Some 6,400 media representatives reported from the fairgrounds. Hosting some 300 agents at more than 450 workplaces, the Literary Agents & Scouts Centre (LitAg) was overbooked. At the same time, the book fair was more political than ever, which was evident above all in the programme of events curated with the fair’s partners. In the Frankfurt Pavilion, politicians, cultural creatives, authors and translators engaged in lively discussions about the protest movement in Iran, the situation of people in Ukraine, increasing divisions in society, and the Russian opposition. Under the motto “Translate. Transfer. Transform.” this year’s book fair put a spotlight on translation and translators. Some 1,500 visitors made their way to the stage in the International Translation Center to take part in one of the close-to 30 events there.
