Since its founding in 1992, Hauser & Wirth Publishers has been devoted to the presentation of unique, object-like books and a rich exchange of ideas between artists and scholars. With a backlist comprising monographs, artists’ books, exhibition catalogues, and collections of artists’ writings, Hauser & Wirth Publishers plays a central role in the gallery’s identity and program. Each publication seeks to encourage understanding about contemporary art, promoting discourse and appreciation by bringing new, sometimes overlooked, aspects of an artist’s creative practice into focus. Hauser & Wirth Publishers commissions original, in-depth essays and texts, and collaborates with esteemed book designers to realize each creative vision. With rigorous scholarship, extensive illustrations, and thoughtful craftsmanship that emphasizes the essence of an object, Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ books serve as universally accessible, long-term records of 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.
