Broken Dimanche Press is a European press interested in all aspects of books within the wider discourses of contemporary art and politics. Founded in Berlin in 2009 by John Holten and Line Madsen Simenstad, BDP has executed many book projects, exhibition, reading series and interventions across Europe.

Aside from on-going publishing activity we have a Para-Poetics Programme, Exhibition Programme and a BDP Self Publishing Archive as well as an occasional Residency BDP. We have an office and public showroom and gallery, Büro BDP, located in Berlin's Neukoelln district.

Büro BDP is a multidisciplinary hybrid: office, creative agency, exhibition space, book showroom, archive for artists books and reading room, exploring the radical potentialities of an expanded notion of The Book in the contemporary age. Taking its cue from the initial impulse of Broken Dimanche Press – exploring the border between literature and contemporary art practice – the focus is on translation, editions, print solutions and the physical meeting of the core agents in book production: writers, artist, designers, editors, printers, distributors, booksellers and readers. With a bespoke modular desk and display unit created by Canadian designer Leanne MacKay and over 50m2 of gallery and office space, it is our hope to offer books and the contemporary avantgarde a welcoming, constructive zone in Berlin.
