Carnet de miart is the online magazine of the event, launched with the 2015 edition. The goal of the Carnet is to provide a space of debate and discussion around themes like production, conservation and circulation of art, with a particular focus on the context of the fair and its protagonists.
Every two weeks Carnet de miart presents essays, interviews and works by artists, curators, collectors and critics, as well as information, updates and previews of the art scene in Milan and the most interesting places to visit before, during or after the fair itself.
