Publishers

Since its founding in 1992, Hauser & Wirth Publishers has presented unique, object-like books that encourage an understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. Its backlist comprises monographs, artists’ books, exhibition catalogues, and collections of artists’ writings – often bringing new and overlooked aspects of an artist’s creative practice into focus. By commissioning original, in-depth scholarship to give thoughtful insight into featured art objects, Hauser & Wirth Publishers aims to craft accessible and lasting records of the gallery’s exhibitions and artists’ work.

Hauser & Wirth Bookshops

In recent years, Hauser & Wirth Publishers has undergone a rapid evolution. In addition to an increase in the number of books produced and scholarship commissioned each year, Hauser & Wirth Publishers has a significant physical presence within Hauser & Wirth’s galleries globally. The Hauser & Wirth Publishers Bookshops serve as a hub for artists, students, and the local community, presenting public programs conceived by Hauser & Wirth Publishers with curators, writers, and other collaborators. They offer dozens of titles representing the gallery’s quarter-century history of exhibitions, projects, and research. The Bookshops also feature artists’ books, limited editions, and curated displays of rare and archival materials.

Book Donation Program

Hauser & Wirth Publishers regularly donates a selection of our recent catalogues to a select number of major public institutions, universities and research libraries around the world. We wish to share our artists’ work, and our gallery’s books, in order to promote scholarship and allow for further academic study.

Should you wish to be considered for the Book Donation Program, please send your submission to publishers@hauserwirth.com
