Artists’ voices, exceptional art, scholarship, design, and bookmaking are at the heart of Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ program. Publications have always played a vital role at Hauser & Wirth as resources for and lasting records of the gallery’s exhibitions and artists’ work. Hauser & Wirth Publishers has grown to become a leading imprint for unique, object-like books that encourage an understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art. With the special access granted by artists to their writings and archives, Hauser & Wirth Publishers offers a program of more than twenty-five titles per year and also publishes the quarterly art magazine, ‘Ursula.’ Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ backlist comprises monographs, artists’ books, and exhibition catalogs – often bringing new and overlooked aspects of an artist’s creative practice into focus.
With offices in New York City, Zurich, and London, Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ activity has steadily flourished since its early years when it frequently cooperated with reputable imprints such as Hatje Cantz, JRP|Ringier, Snoeck, Steidl, Thames & Hudson, and Yale University Press to conceptualize, develop, and produce original, in-depth scholarship that gives thoughtful insight into featured art objects.
